Perl 6 is a programming language that emerged in 2000. In December 2015, the stable version 6.c of the language specification was released.
This book is the first one based on the stable version. It is intended to allow a quick dive into Perl 6 and is dedicated to those readers who are already familiar with Perl 5 as well as for those who have never used any Perl before.
