Perl 6 Hackathon Ideas

At the Perl 6 hackathon? Wanting to get started with something? Here are some ideas!

Getting Started

How to start hacking on Rakudo Perl 6 by Brent Laabs: http://derplnmiit.appspot.com/blog.brentlaabs.com/2013/05/how-to-start-hacking-on-rakudo-perl-6.html

Write tests to close Rakudo tickets

Some issues have been fixed, but the associated bug ticket can't be closed until there is test coverage! Such tickets are listed here:


By contributing a test to the spectest suite, these tickets can be closed, and we can ensure the bug never bites us again!

Write a Perl 6 module

If you don't know what to write, look at the "most wanted" repo: https://github.com/perl6/perl6-most-wanted


Write some docs

The docs at http://doc.perl6.org/ are incomplete. If you stumble over a missing bit, add it to https://github.com/perl6/doc/.


Write a Term::ANSIColor equivalent that uses the NativeCall module to call the Windows API and do colors. Then, if feeling brave, try a Term::AnyColor that abstracts away the two.

Sockets on Rakudo JVM

One of the remaining major missing pieces of Rakudo JVM is socket support. Work on adding it.
