Please try to avoid duplicating news; but pointers (with summaries) to important stories on other sites are acceptable here.
This is experimental and currently works by patching a local copy of WebPerl, and it only works in Google Chrome (because Rakudo.js needs BigInt support). I've tried to explain things in the above link, let me know if you have questions.
The London Perl Workshop (LPW) is a free one-day technical conference at the Cavendish campus of the University of Westminster in central London. It has been happening since 2000 or so and it's happening yet again. It's free, and there will be a lot of Perl types running around London for a few days.
WHEN: Saturday 24th November 2018
WHERE: 115 New Cavendish Street London W1W 6UW
The website is here - have a look at who's coming, the schedule (if it's up) and maybe sign up.
It would appear that Mojave updates XCode, but the update can be applied separately. The important detail is that XCode 10 removes libgcc from the system, on which absence linking suddenly fails.
Perl advertises "LD = env MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.3 cc"; fixing this involves getting "10.3" changed to something more useful. I'm still wrapping my head around the details of implementing a workable fix for me. Read the article for clues.
I have to admit that due to several significant instances of trauma in my life over the past year I wasn't able to provide much assistance at all, so all of the credit here goes to Timm. I will continue on with the project though (editing duties, adding additional chapters etc) going forward.

If you have any questions, concerns, ideas, issues or otherwise with the book itself, the ideas it presents or the actual code, don't hesitate to contact me here, or at my contact email here.
Did you enjoy Glasgow (or any previous TPC or YAPC)? please read http://www.yapceurope.org/reboot.html and consider if you are the one YEF is looking for, so we all will have those awesome gatherings in the years to come (and we can all meet again, YEAH!)
I just released what I'm calling WebPerl - please see the website for all the documentation, downloadable demo, and source code. It's still very much in beta, and your feedback is very welcome!
I gave a lightning talk on it yesterday at YAPC::EU 2018 in Glasgow, you can see the recording of the live stream here (link should go to 8h9m40s).

Update 2: Video is back up, thanks for pointing it out, Corion! New Video Link (link should go to 8h12m)
Update 2: I have since posted a few more nodes on WebPerl:
