Apocrypha: stories about Perl 6 documentation — 45 minutes; accepted
Perl 6 has a peculiar, all volunteer, model of documenting the language. This talk will explain the history of Perl 6 documentation, the state it is now, and how it might navigate into the future. It also hopes to shed some light on how documentation is the one of the things that binds the community together, how to look at it as a Perl application, and also what you can learn from documenting and how documentation is written for making your own applications (and its documentation) better.
Genesis: Concurrent evolutionary algorithms in Perl 6 — 20 minutes; pending
Perl 6, as a language with facilities for concurrency, is amenable to be used as a research tool for the implementation of evolutionary algorithms. However, concurrency is not a straightforward feature that can be tacked in an existing algorithm. In this talk we will talk about how we designed and implemented this kind of algorithms, and the good, bad and ugly results we got out of them.
