A 2 Day Course

An Introduction to Perl 6 in English or Norwegian.

Prior programming experience is required. Knowledge of Perl 5 is helpful, but not required.

This course will be introduced at PerlCon 2019 in Riga (August).

My Perl6 In 45+45 Minutes presentation at the Nordic Perl Workshop in Oslo 2018 was based on an early version of this course.


A 350 pages printed textbook in English, written especially for this course, is included.
