Ok, kidding aside, why?

Since this has gone unanswered, I'll give it a shot. Here are some of my reasons for playing with Pugs (and note that this is an unordered list on purpose):

  • It's a lot of fun tracking a fast-moving project
    • Especially when you submit bug reports that get fixed less than 24 hours later
  • The new language seems to be very nice, if the snippets of code I've written for Pugs are any indication
  • It's a nice way to learn Perl 6 gradually, "just for fun"
  • I have a feeling that following the development of the language and implementation will help immensely later on
  • Just by finding bugs and checking in test cases, I get my name in the AUTHORS file ;-)
