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

Perl 6 may seem large and daunting, but when you stop focusing on the new (and therefore *optional*) bits, the core language is obviously your familiar friend, Perl 5.

In this talk, I will highlight the elements of Perl 5 that were kept intact in Perl 6, or that Perl 6 turned all the way up to "11".

Come see your old love in a new light.
