Audrey Tang

aka audreyt aka autrijus

The primary force behind Pugs, the original Perl 6 compiler implementation in Haskell that targets at least four different backends, including JavaScript. Ended the long 'Dark Ages' of compiler-side Perl 6 development -- see Tang's Time-line in When will Perl 6 be released?. Spread '-Ofun' and commit bits to the masses and held lots of Perl 6 talks.
