2020.10 The Videos

Alas, not all videos of the German Perl and Raku Workshop have been released yet, but these are the ones that are and have (at least some) Raku content:

Note that the Raku Q&A was a last-minute change to replace the “Realizing Raku Macros” presentation, which unfortunately could not be given on account of Jonathan Worthington losing his voice and generally feeling awful. We wish them “Gute Besserung”!

Community Affairs Team

The Perl Foundation has announced the intent to create Community Affairs Teams which would have two objectives:

  • Managing a community led set of rules on behalf of our communities
  • Being able to professionaly respond to issues raised during and outside events and conferences in a timely and appropriate manner

The Perl Foundation would fund training, and a contribution towards event attendance costs. Please check the Slack #tpf-cat channel if you have any questions or suggestions. (/r/perl comments)

And a related solution by Holli. Challenge #51 is up for your perusal!

Core Developments

A quiet week with the GPaRW and many core developers travelling / preparing their presentations.

  • Patrick Böker made git submodule updating a little more platform agnostic.
  • Vadim Belman fixed a recently introduced issue that showed up in OO::Monitors testing. They also introduced nqp::nextdispatcherfor and nqp::takenextdispatcher ops that make it possible to chain dispatchers.
  • Elizabeth Mattijsen and Vadim Belman worked on reducing the startup of Rakudo by a few milliseconds.
  • And a few smaller fixes.

Winding down

Back home from a week in Erlangen, just in time for the weekly about the Raku Programming Language. Otherwise a relatively quiet week, apart from quite a lot of attention for Audrey Tang in the Japanese twitterverse. Please check in again next week, when Jonathan Worthington‘s presentations should be viewable online. Until then, break a leg!
