The easiest way to get started with Perl 6
Tadeusz Sośnierz (tadzik) @ PLPW 2014
Interested in Perl 6?
Want to give it a try?
Rakudo – a (the) Perl 6 compiler
Probably available in your OS
Probably pretty outdated
Perlbrew solves that problem for Perl 5
Lets you install perl in your home directory
any version you want
Rakudobrew does that for Perl 6
Super easy to install
no problems with deleting it afterwards
$ git clone git://github.com/tadzik/rakudobrew.git ~/.rakudobrew
&& export PATH=$HOME/.rakudobrew/bin:$PATH
&& rakudobrew build moar
Makes it easy to install Panda (the module installer)
$ rakudobrew build-panda
$ panda install Acme::Meow # or anything else
Keep multiple versions
$ rakudobrew build jvm-2014.03
$ rakudobrew build parrot-2013.01
$ rakudobrew switch jvm # no need to write the full name
Friendly user interface!
rakudobrew build [jvm|parrot|moar]
rakudobrew switch [jvm|parrot|moar]
Easy to get rid of!
rm -rf ~/.rakudobrew # there, gone!

Free yearly support if you install it in the next 5 minutes!
OBTW, I write games too
