11:52 Ven joined #6macros
11:52 Ven o/
11:54 Ven masak: do you have any idea for a 6advent blog post? I'm considering continuing my blogpost from last year (on quickcheck/6check), but I'd gladly take another topic.....
12:34 masak hm
12:34 masak has anyone written about refactoring as seen from a Perl 6 lens?
13:11 Ven mh. that sounds a bit vague, I'm not too sure what you mean?
13:12 masak not sure actually
13:12 masak sometimes I get the feeling that Perl 6 is quite refactoring-friendly
13:12 masak considering that I do most things in it without an IDE
13:12 masak there are numerous ways to write one thing, and usually it's quite pleasant to rewrite it from one way to another
13:13 masak through the years I've come to think of those transitions between working states of the program as being themselves quite interesting and worthy of study
14:04 Ven well, I think we have enough talks and blogposts about grammars and subsets.
14:04 Ven I really liked your "everyday Perl 6" talk btw. I wanted to write something akin to that...
14:05 masak oh, cool -- the Swiss Perl Workshop one?
14:18 Ven yes.
14:19 Ven "it's not about the crazy one-liners, it's about actual DWIMs"
14:19 masak yeah
14:19 masak when I started in ~2005 with Perl 6, it was definitely the crazy "cool" features that pulled me in
14:20 masak but that's not why I use Perl 6 nowadays
14:20 masak junctions are a good example. I don't hate them 100%, but I use them *very* sparingly
14:20 Ven don't tell me. I started learning it because an advent calendar blogpost had typo'd "[&&]" as "[&&}" and I wanted to learn a language crazy enough to have non-matching brackets. :P
14:21 Ven not sure how to write something about this without plagiarizing your document. :P
14:44 masak haha
14:44 masak if you feel you have a topic there, go for it
