Perl 6: Citius, Altius, Fortius
Presented by Damian Conway
Monday Evening, 8:00 PM, California Ballroom
This talk previews the newest features of Perl 6, including strong typing, multiple dispatch, hyperoperators, superpositions, higher-order functions, multidimensional data structures, nested classes, and a powerful new grammar-based regex mechanism. We'll see how simple changes to Perl's existing syntax and semantics will make everyday Perl programming safer and easier, as well as explore some of the powerful programming techniques (declarative programming, backtracking, multimorphism, delegation, parallel programming, etc.) that Perl 6 makes possible.
