On Saturday, 13 January, 2007, please join us on IRC in #parrot (irc.perl.org) to work on closing out as many RT (https://rt.perl.org/rt3/) tickets as possible in the parrot queue. This will help us get ready for the next release of parrot 0.4.8, scheduled for Tuesday 16 January 2007. You'll find C, parrot assembly, perl, documentation, and plenty of tasks to go around. Core developers will be available all day (starting at around 10am GMT) to answer questions.
No experience with parrot necessary. See the parrot wiki page for more information.
