Welcome to the Parrot Developer Wiki
This wiki is a workplace for developers of the Parrot virtual machine and related languages, tools, and applications. If you aren't a developer, you may be looking for the main Parrot website.
The current status and plan is available at the Parrot Roadmap.
If you have resources to contribute to Parrot this week, the weekly focus is removing deprecated items. Please ask on the mailing list or in the IRC channel if you need assistance.
Older content might be still in the old Parrot wiki, which is in the process of being [MigrateTheWiki migrated to this wiki].
