One of the speakers in the Perl-DevRoom at FOSDEM, Brussels was Jonathan Worthington. He gave a very practical demonstration of what is possible with Perl6 at a level that every developer can understand.
Jonathan is one of those people that are dedicated to bring Perl 6 into the hands of programmers. He takes a lot off effort into the development of the Rakudo Compiler. You can read up on his web-page about Perl 6 for more interesting things.
For those who missed that presentation, there will be an excelent opertunity for you to see what you can do with Perl6 at the NLPW::2014
