Perl 6 Tutorial Part 1: Revision 7
Motivation for a new Tutorial
Perl 6 appears slowly before the wondering eyes of the curious, but if they grab Rakudo and the dokumentation (aka synopses) and try to write there first programs, they often don't get too far. The languages changes a bit every week and Rakudo nor Pugs know every command. The synopses aren't an easy read either. They are huge and contain a lot of nifty words. More written to clear edge cases to computer science students than to help the noobs to get a grasp. Therefore we would need a tutorial that introduces the reader slowly into the world of Perl 6 and prerequests as little knowledge as possible. Of course some basic Perl 5 wisdom is needed but everything else will be explained on the way. Every chapter of this tutorial is focused on one topic and containes many examples so you can start to play with the language, which I encourage you to do. Because it takes time to lern Perl and the new generation is optimized even on that.
