Perl 6 is a new language in the Perl family, incorporating many ideas from Perl 5 and other scripting languages into a new coherent whole. Perl 6 is versatile, intuitive, flexible, and contains significant syntactic and semantic improvements from Perl 5. This talk will discuss Perl's renaissance, describe several of the new and powerful features available in the Perl 6 language, and introduce "Rakudo Perl" (the leading implementation of Perl 6).
