When: 7pm Aug 19th
Where: FreeGeek, 1731 SE 10th Avenue
What: PL/Parrot and PL/Perl6 - Parrots and Butterflies in your Database
Who: Jonathan "Duke" Leto
PL/Parrot is the Parrot Virtual Machine, embedded into the PostgreSQL
relational database. This means that any Parrot language has the
opportunity to become a PostgreSQL Procedural Language (PL). PL/Parrot
supports writing stored procedures in the following languages:
* PL/PIR(U) - Parrot Intermediate Representation (PIR)
* PL/Perl6(U) - Rakudo Perl 6
This talk will give a quick introduction to Parrot VM and Rakudo Perl
6, and why you would want them in your database, including a status
update of the current feature set of PL/Parrot and PL/Perl6. Example
stored procedures in each language will be shown and, time permitting,
the internals of how PL/Parrot works will be described. More
information can be found at http://pl.parrot.org .
Beer afterwards at the SE Lucky Lab.
Jonathan is an open source hacker who currently focuses on the Parrot
Virtual Machine and Rakudo Perl 6, as well as being the maintainer of
many CPAN modules. He has been involved with Google Summer of Code
since 2008 and is currently organization administrator for The Perl
Foundation and Parrot Foundation, as well as a mentor for RTEMS on
Parrot. Jonathan received a masters in mathematics from University of
Central Florida and has published several papers in the field of
differential equations. He enjoys discovering wheels within wheels.
See you there!
