Perl 6
Conrad Schneiker: Revision 1

About That $1,000 Prize

About Me

  • I did the original Perl 6 Users FAQ. I later used that to provide the first big batch of content for this Wiki.
  • Thwarted attempts to create user-oriented Perl 6 Google Group, and later, difficulties in trying to resurrect perl.perl6.meta for this purpose, eventually led to the creation of perl.perl6.users.
  • Perl 6 Forecast on 2-18-2005: "Perl 6 — The Next “World’s Greatest Programming Super-Language” (http://www.athenalab.com/#_Perl6). At the time, most people seemed to think that Perl 6 would never be completed, or that if it ever did get done, it would be too late to catch on. However the memories of somewhat analogous skepticism about Ruby were still fresh in my mind.
  • Recent ancient history (i.e. around the turn of the century): I jumped through the procedural hooped needed to extablish the Usenet newsgroup comp.lang.ruby in the "big 8" hierarchy, because I thought Ruby was great (and still do), and because I hoped it might spur serious OO improvements to Perl 5. (I've been a long time {Perl 3, Perl 4, and Perl 5} user, but I've always disliked Perl 5's OO.)
