The Perl 6 language has a range of features to make it easier to write more maintainable code. Classes, roles, a powerful type system, tighter scoping rules, the ability to do more compile-time checks and a grammar readily available to build code analysis tools are just some of the things that help.

However, that doesn't mean Perl 6 has forgotten Perl's role as a language for those one-liners or quick hacks! Perl has always been awesome for string manipulation. Perl 6 retains that, and adds the same kind of power to working with lists of data too.

In this talk, we'll explore some of the things in Perl 6 that make it easier to do both the small things and the large ones.
