People of Perl: Patrick Michaud
Patrick Michaud joined the Perl 6 project in 2004, after the team put out a call for a compiler pumpking. Since then, he's ported Perl 6 rules to Parrot, written an operator precedence parser, and has a working Perl 6 compiler. In addition, Patrick is an active contributor to the design of Perl 6 and the implementation of Pugs. Recently, he agreed to answer Perl.com's usual interview questions.
