The Rakudo Weekly News comes from a long history of weekly blog posts that started as far back as 2003. This incarnation of this weekly blog focuses on the development of the Rakudo™ compiler, an implementation of the Raku® Programming Language and its open and inclusive community.
The weekly publication of this blog, is usually on Monday evening (CET). However, external circumstances may cause a slightly earlier, or slightly later publication. In rare circumstances, a week may be skipped, but this will usually be announced beforehand.
Each issue contains a main article which focuses on the most important event of the week. Other events, such as blog postings, are then referenced. An overview of Rakudo™ compiler core developments, questions about the Raku® Programming Language, and references in other (social) media. Followed by an overview of new and updated Raku modules of the week.
