Perl 6 involvement

Both Moscow.pm and DeepText LLC are fond of Perl 6 and help its development. We published a series of interviews with Perl 6 developers, both translated and taken exclusively. We held a Perl 6 hack meet during Perl Mova + YAPC::Russia conference in Kiev in 2010. Rakudo Perl 6 releases #28 and #30 were named after Moscow and Kiev respectively.

Moscow.pm essentials

The Moscow.pm Perl mongers group has been active since November 2007, and has grown from 2 people to 250+ members. The Moscow.pm group meets offline every one or two months.

The creation of Moscow.pm resulted in the formation of several new groups after that first workshop in Moscow.

DeepText LLC

DeepText company was established in 2007 to help organizing Perl events in Russia and neighbouring countries. The company stands behind every event mentioned earlier in the list of our events.

The company has sponsored Jonathan Worthington's work on multiple dispatch in Perl 6 and brian d foy’s visit to YAPC::Russia in 2009.

We also helped Tim Bunce, Carl Mäsak, Jonathan Worthington and Marian Marinov to be invited as guest speakers to larger IT conferences happened in Moscow in 2008, 2009 and 2010.

It also helps to deliver to Russian speaking audience the latest information on Perl 6 and interviews with people closely related with its development on perl6.ru and onperl.ru sites.

YAPC::TV is our project containing video recordings of Perl talks.
