Parrot is a virtual machine designed to efficiently compile and execute bytecode for dynamic languages. Parrot currently hosts a variety of language implementations in various stages of completion, including Tcl, Javascript, Ruby, Lua, Scheme, PHP, Python, Perl 6, APL, and a .NET bytecode translator. Parrot is not about parrots, though we are rather fond of them for obvious reasons.

HELO GSOC

Sorry I'm late. I'll put my coat and hat away and be right with you.

Here's a puffin while you wait puffin

I'm Lucian, and I like Python and Parrot.

I was lucky to be accepted for GSoC, doing Python3 on Parrot. Here's my proposal. There's a schedule in there and explanation of what I plan to do.

The adventure begins

Hello, I'm Tyler Curtis (tcurtis on #parrot), and once again, I have the fortune to be doing Google Summer of Code for Parrot. This summer, I will be writing a LALR parser generator targetting Parrot. My proposal contains a tentative schedule and some amount of explanation of what my project involves. I plan to produce some further explanation in a future blog post, as well.

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Howdy.

My name is Kevin Polulak (a.k.a. soh_cah_toa) and I am one of the seven newest additions to the Parrot community. This is going to be my first Google Summer of Code. The goal of my project is to build a language-independent symbolic debugger for Parrot. My proposal can be read here.

Hello Parrot

Hello, My name is Rohit Jangid and I have been selected as a Google Summer of Code student.
My project is Implementing "JavaScript Compiler on Parrot". This is my first post on Parrot so I would like give a brief introduction to my project and why It's an awesome one.

I am an undergrad in Department of Computer Engineering in NSIT India.

HELLO! My name is: benabik

My name is Brian Gernhardt and I'm a Google Summer of Code student. My project is Migrating PAST to NQP and newPOST. The full description of my project is there, along with a short biography, but for those who want to skip the nitty gritty details, I'll give a short version here.

Parrot 3.3.0 "Fire in the Sky" Released!

Nor is there any embarrassment in the fact that we're ridiculous, isn't it
true? For it's actually so, we are ridiculous, light-minded, with bad
habits, we're bored, we don't know how to look, how to understand, we're
all like that, all, you, and I, and they! Now, you're not offended when
I tell you to your face that you're ridiculous? And if so, aren't you
material? You know, in my opinion it's sometimes even good to be
ridiculous, if not better: we can the sooner forgive each other, the
sooner humble ourselves; we can't understand everything at once, we can't

"Do It for Python!"

Those who have known me for the past decade may be thinking, "Jim Keenan is a
Perl programmer. Why would he want anything done for Python's sake?"
