Sex and Violence: Social and Technical Lessons from the Perl 6 Project

A session at GOTO Aarhus 2012

  • Damian Conway

Tuesday 2nd October, 2012

11:30am to 12:20pm (CET)

In June 2000, Larry Wall announced a new four-month Open Source development effort: the reinvention of Perl. In this presentation, Perl 6 co-designer Damian Conway will unfold the twisting and sordid tale of what happened over the next ten years of the project, highlighting the sexy new language that has been created, the extreme violence that was sometimes necessary to make it happen, and a dozen or so of the harsh-but-invaluable lessons that the development team learned along the way.
