mod_perl is the foundation of many web sites today, both large and small. But what happens when Perl 6 is finally released? Without a "mod_perl6", these sites will have no compelling reason to upgrade or even explore Perl 6. Fortunately, mod_perl6 does exist! This talk will provide a overview of the current state of mod_perl6, including its inner workings, how it can function without a completed Perl 6, and how it provides an upgrade path for future releases of Perl. There will even be working demos of real Perl 6 handlers and registry scripts!
