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!

June Report

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)!

Tangling Code

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!

Announcement Recovered

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)!
