  • July 2020 grant report from Jonathan Worthington on RakuAST Thu, 23-Jul-2020 by Moritz Lenz

    Jonathan has been working hard on his RakuAST grant, and made some great progress. He'll be pausing development for roughly two weeks for some well-earned vacation.

  • June report of the Raku Development Grant of Jonathan Worthington Fri, 10-Jul-2020 by Matthias Bloch

    Jonathan writes:

    My grant time in June was spent on the new unified dispatch mechanism; my May report provides some background on what that is, and this report will make more sense having read the May report first.

During June, I started applying it to rather more realistic problems.
