mod_parrot embeds the Parrot VM in the Apache web server, giving Parrot and its languages access to the Apache API without the overhead of writing an Apache module for each language. It is the platform on which mod_perl6 is being developed and even has a working PHP implementation. This talk explores the goals of mod_parrot, its architecture, and why it is important at this point in time. It also examines how popular languages like Perl 6 are currently supported, and demonstrates the ease with which new languages can be integrated.
