The Perl Conference 2018

The State of the CPAN Butterfly Plan

In January I proposed the CPAN Butterfly Plan: a project to migrate as many (upstream) Perl 5 modules as possible to Perl 6. This to lower the threshold for other Perl 5 users to start using Perl 6, so that they can use modules that are familiar while trying to get to grips with the syntactic changes between Perl 5 and Perl 6. This presentation will be about how far we’ve gotten in the 5 months since, and how things are looking for the near and slightly further future.

Audience: Everyone
