2020.45 Cro Serviced

In almost a weekly event, Jonathan Worthington has just announced the 0.8.4 release of Cro, the Raku Programming Language’s set of libraries for building reactive distributed systems. What yours truly actually finds amazing, is that apart from the people of Edument, this release has contributions by 9 Raku community members, indicating a growing user base.

And it’s a 100!

Arne Sommer is celebrating their 100th Raku blog post with an extensive multi-part blog post covering 100 different sequences: from Arithmetic, Geometric, Primes and Fibonacci, Palindrome and every Tom, Dick and Harry (/r/rakulang comments). A recommended read!

Adventing around the corner
