Introduction to Perl 6

Rob Hoelz

Tuesday Febrary 23rd 2016 at 7:00pm
Wheaton, Cozymel's Mexican Restaurant, 311 E Loop Rd (Butterfield & E. Loop Rd), Banquet room

Our 2016 general meetings will be in a different location this year. We are trying this location. which is where we held our usual "After the Meeting" meeting in 2015. Orders for food/drink will be taken during the break in the middle of the presentation if you are hungry and don't want to wait until after the presentation (You will be expected to cover your own food/drink costs including tax). Be gracious and buy your own dinner and/or drinks, Cozymel's is letting us use the room for free so it's only right.


You may have heard the news; Perl 6 has officially been released! Whether your experience with Perl in the past has been good or bad, you may find yourself pleasantly surprised by the newest addition to the Perl family. Whatever your background, Rob will be sure to show you something that will astound you.


Rob Hoelz is an occasional contributor to the Perl 6 effort. He likes dabbling in languages (both programming and natural!), including Perl 6, Elm, and Russian. He enjoys working on Perl 6 because of the potential he sees in the language, the mixture of high-level and low-level coding it requires, and the community around it.

Getting to the meeting

The next General meeting of UniForum Chicago will be at:

        Cozymel's Mexican Restaurant
        311 East Loop Road
        Butterfield E. Loop Rd. 
        (next to Chick-fil-A by the IIT-Rice campus)
        Wheaton, IL  60187

The previous IIT-Rice location in Wheaton we have been enjoying over the past decade is no longer what we will be using. This location was our usual "After the Meeting" meeting in 2015 where we would go after the presentation. Tonight, we are having the presentation at the same place that people can get food/drink.
