Braindump of questions for the hackathon attendees
- How/Why is Perl6 radically different from other languages?
- How do we tell this?
- Are there any/What are the scientific papers/research that Perl 6 builds on?
- Why does Perl 6 development take a long time?
- Why are there too few developers?
- Has the Perl 6 development process been too complicated?
- What can be done to make it easier for new developers to join?
- Has the documentation/specification been too much oriented towards current Perl 6 developers, rather than to external users?
- What should we do to actively reach/recruit more developers?
- How will a future with Perl 6 look like?
- How do we get to this future?
- What does it mean for me, as a programmer, that Perl 6 is released?
- How do I learn Perl 6?
- What software/modules can I make use of?
- What infrastructure do I have available?
- What should this infrastructure look like?
- Should there be more “official” frameworks, or should we keep embracing timtowdy? How much should we focus on the former or allow the latter?
- Why the high ambitions with Perl 6?
- Can we use these ambitions in any new ways?
- How do we share these ambitions? How do we explain their reason?
- How do we use these ambitions for a marketing purpose?
- How do we convey the differences between Perl 6 and other languages?
- What are the killer arguments for why people should switch to Perl 6?
- How might the Perl 6 language features influence the way we write programs? (e.g. features like roles, grammars, gradual typing, multis, junctions, terseness, meta*operators)
- How can we make binary bindings (c libraries) more accesible?
- How can we make “Write once, use on any VM” a reality?
- How can we show use of all these new features?
- How do we teach these concepts well?
- What do we have to do to establish a notion of “Idiomatic Perl 6”? “Perl 6 patterns”? “Perl 6 by example”?
- How to do we communicate the Perl 6 revolution?
- Do we need a Perl 6 marketing group?
- How can we get Perl 6 more into research and development communities?
- How can we make Perl 6 the natural choice for learning scripting languages?
- What tag lines should we use? (cf. Java had “write once, run everywhere”)
- Are there other ways of presenting information about the language and software, that would make it easier for new users?
