You can find more information on the speaker's site:

Prior to meaning 'Polymorphic Existential Recursive Lamdas', Perl meant 'Practical Extraction and Report Language'. Perl 6 has not lost the practical extraction capabilities of previous Perls, but like many things, has vastly improved.

We will examine how to group multiple regexes together into a grammar, how to transform regex output, and how to return custom objects.

We will examine a simple document, such as a conference schedule, and extract interesting information, placing the extracted data in a structured document (either YAML or XML).
