Submission + - The Perl 6 Advent Calendar

An anonymous reader writes: Larry Wall wasn't joking when he said that Perl 6 would be ready by Christmas, perhaps not this Christmas but that hasn't stopped a group of people (including head Rakudo developers Patrick Michaud and Jonathan Worthington) from putting together an Advent Calendar, featuring one cool Perl 6 feature everyday until Christmas. Topics currently covered include how to get and build Rakudo (the most actively developed and progressed implementation of Perl 6) and the new Metaoperators. For those wondering when Perl 6 will be finished; Rakudo will be having it's official 'production release' (dubbed Rakudo Star) April 2010.
