19:35 vendethiel http://strangelyconsistent.org/blog/the-2012-perl-6-coding-contest
19:35 masak yeah
19:35 masak somewhat embarrassingly, I've yet to conclude the 2012 one
19:36 masak maybe giving a talk about it will give me the impetus I need ;)
19:36 vendethiel oh :P
19:37 masak if you want a foretaste of what the talk will be about, check out http://strangelyconsistent.org/blog/that-is-so-octal http://strangelyconsistent.org/blog/p4-pick-the-last-pair-of-stones http://strangelyconsistent.org/blog/counting-t4-configurations

19:44 vendethiel http://irclog.perlgeek.de/perl6/2014-06-28#i_8943623 is that okay to use in my talk?
19:44 vendethiel I used it in the learnxiny :P

19:51 vendethiel about perl6
19:51 vendethiel but I plan to go only with livecoding :P
19:52 masak good luck
19:52 vendethiel hahaha
19:53 vendethiel luck,indeed.
19:53 vendethiel i'm terrified of doing a livecoding-only presentation
19:53 vendethiel *something* will go wrong
19:53 masak :)
19:53 masak then plan for that
19:53 vendethiel ;-)
19:53 vendethiel i'll sing them a lullaby
19:53 vendethiel *shhh*
19:54 vendethiel should I say "will fail at BEGIN time" instead of "will fail to compile"?
19:54 vendethiel especially for 5ers
19:54 masak up to you
19:55 masak as long as you explain things, it's fine either way
19:56 vendethiel I should probably explain subsets before multi-methods
20:04 vendethiel uh
20:04 vendethiel it seems I don't have the hash-with-typed-keys syntax in the learnx
20:04 vendethiel I don't remember
20:10 vendethiel m: my Int %h{Str} = a => 3, "hey" => 2;
