Title: The Perl 6 Programming Language

Abstract: Perl 6 will be a major improvement on Perl 5 in many ways: syntactically, semantically, psychologically, and performance-wise. This talk looks at what is known, surmised, guessed, wished for, and dreaded about Perl 6. It discusses the history, motivations, syntax, semantics, and likely idioms of the new Perl.
