=TITLE Community
=SUBTITLE Information about the people working on and using Perl 6
=head1 Overview
"Perl 5 was my rewrite of Perl. I want Perl 6 to be the community's rewrite
of Perl and of the community." - Larry Wall
=head1 The Perl 6 community
=head2 Online communities
There is a large presence on the L<C<#perl6>|https://perl6.org/community/irc> channel on C<freenode.net>, who are happy to provide support and answer questions, or just use as a friendly place to hang out.
Check out this L<IRC lingo|http://www.ircbeginner.com/ircinfo/abbreviations.html> resource for the abbreviations frequently used there.
L<StackOverflow|https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/perl6> is also a great resource for asking questions and helping others with their Perl 6 problems and challenges.
More resources can be found in the L<perl6.org community page|https://perl6.org/community/>.
=head2 Offline communities
Perl 6 is also a common topic at L<Perl conferences|https://www.perl.org/events.html> and L<Perl Monger meetings|https://www.pm.org/> and L<other meetups|https://perl.meetup.com/>.
If you prefer in-person meetings, these are warmly recommended!
=head2 Other resources
L<Camelia|https://perl6.org/>, the multi-color butterfly with P 6 in her wings, is the symbol of this diverse and welcoming community.
=head1 Perl 6 Weekly
Elizabeth Mattijsen usually posts in L<the "Perl 6 Weekly" blog|https://p6weekly.wordpress.com/>, a summary of Perl 6 posts, tweets, comments and other interesting tidbits.
If you want a single resource to know what is going on in the Perl community now, this is your best resource.
=head1 Perl 6 Advent calendar
The Perl 6 community publishes every December an
L<Advent Calendar|https://perl6advent.wordpress.com/>, with Perl 6 tutorials
every day until Christmas. Organization and assignment of days is done through
the different Perl 6 channels and the
L<Perl6/advent|https://github.com/perl6/advent> repository. If you want to
participate, its organization starts by the end of October, so check out
the channels above to keep up to date.
