Wrap-up Report on Patrick Michaud's Mozilla Foundation / Perl Foundation Perl 6 development grant
Mon, 10-Nov-2008 by
Recently, Patrick Michaud, head of the "'Rakudo' Perl 6 implementation":http://rakudo.org/ effort on top of the "Parrot VM":http://www.parrot.org/, was awarded the first "Hague grant for Perl 6 development":http://www.perlfoundation.org/ian_hague_perl_6_development_grants. This grant is effectively a follow-up and extension to his highly successful "Mozilla Foundation / Perl Foundation grant for Perl 6 development ":http://news.perlfoundation.org/2007/11/patrick_michaud_awarded_perl_6.htmlthat was awarded in November 2007. Patrick wrote an "excellent summary":http://use.perl.org/%7Epmichaud/journal/37403 of the grant and what it achieved at his "use.perl.org":http://use.perl.org/ journal.
For anyone who is interested in why Patrick is receiving a new grant to continue this work, I highly recommend you read the grant summary for the MoFo/TPF Perl 6 grant. It is an shining example of the best that can come from supporting exceptional members of the Perl community in their efforts to advance the Perl technology and Perl culture.
"their efforts to advance the Perl technology and Perl culture"
it (new grants!) makes a great progress in the development
