Have you been avoiding trying out Parrot or Rakudo (the Perl 6 implementation on the Parrot virtual machine)? Come to this lab session and solve your avoidance problems.

We'll walk you through a download of the Parrot source code, building and testing Parrot on your laptop or remote machine. Then we'll show you how to build Perl 6 on Parrot and get you to "Hello, world." At that point, you'll be ready to start playing with Perl 6 yourself.

The Parrot team is particularly interested in having you attend this workshop if you want to try out Parrot and Perl 6 on operating systems for which we do not regularly get smoke test reports. So we welcome participants working on Win32, OpenBSD, Solaris, etc., as well as Linux, Darwin and FreeBSD.
