Impressed with Raku
A post by faiface on /r/ProgrammingLanguages made it to the top 20 of highest upvotes ever. And a nice post it is! Inspired by a professor describing Raku as “an interesting language with a bunch of cool design choices”. Good stuff!
Jonathan Worthington reported on their work on the new unified dispatch mechanism in June for the Raku Development Grant. Great progress being made, and a treasure of internals information (/r/rakulang comments)!
Brian Wisti got themselves into a tangle. Good thing there are Raku regexes! Read all about it in Tangling code from Hugo content in Raku!
Andrew Shitov went through their archives and unearthed an audio-only recording of Larry Wall’s announcement of the release of Perl 6 (/r/rakulang, Twitter comments)!
Alexey Melezhik has published a how-to provision dynamic hosts with Sparrowdo and Sparky.
In response to a question on StackOverflow, Wenzel P. P. Peppmeyer elaborates on ways to indicate absence of values.
