Perl 6, losing your Perl 5 accent. The joke I make regularly is "I speak Perl 6, just with a heavy Perl 5 accent". This session is all about losing that accent and writing more idiomatic Perl 6. Perl 6, will allow you to write code that is very much like Perl 5. This is is awesome, but means you can miss some of the great parts of Perl 6. In this talk we will take some working Perl 6 code written in a Perl 5 style and change it to be more Perl 6 like. Audience participation may be required. ;-)
