Running Grants (2009 - VIII)

Grants updates:

Port PyYAML to Perl -- Ingy döt Net

Ingy update:

I just finished giving my YAML talk today at the NPW in Oslo. It was well received. Later the slides will be up at

This weekend is a hackathon. One of my big plans is to get PyYaml ported to Perl6 in Rakudo enough to parse Larry's syntax trees.

YAML::Perl is all ported but just needs to:
* Finalize work on tag/type resolution.
* Polish the front end APIs.
* Finish passing the test suite.
* Get all the doc written.

Then I think I'll be done with the grant.

There are no changes here yet vs, but I've got all of my plumbing done and I'm figuring out what my constraints are with combust and etc.

I need to figure out what to do with the books - Robert wants me to keep them up but I'm not sure about having them use so much space on the front page -- I'll start a discussion with Robert and Ask about that. There's also, which could use some tough love.

A lightweight web framework for Perl 6 -- Ilya, Carl and Stephen

Ilya, Carl & Steven have been hard at work. In four short weeks they've gone form nothing to having their basic "hello world" application "Nibbler" up and running in Perl6 - great work from all involved.

You can get the full story by looking at their GitHub project and their many blog posts:
