Kickstarter to Support Learning Perl 6 Book

No Comments

A huge number of Perl users can trace their initial coding efforts back to O'Reilly's Learning Perl, now available in its 7th edition. The easy introduction and smooth tour of basic features through more powerful ones made it easy to get started, all with a focus on getting things done.

brian d foy, well known in the Perl community and one of the authors of Learning Perl, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the work to create an O'Reilly-published Learning Perl 6. Just as Learning Perl made Perl 5 accessible to a wide array of programmers, both professional and casual, Learning Perl 6 will introduce this new language in a fun and accessible way. brian provides some additional detail on his perl blog as well. If you're interested in getting started with Perl 6, help brian fund the book that could get you rolling.
