Agrammon is an application for the simulation of NH3 emissions from agriculture (www.agrammon.ch). It is used both for simulating individual farms by and regional and country-wide calculations based on representative surveys and has been in production since about 2008.
As several significant changes and improvements were requested by the customer I took this as opportunity/challenge to implement my first real-world Perl6 application. Fortunately, I was able to acquire help from Jonathan Worthington for the project who implemented a significant part of the new backend and supported me with coaching and code review.
In the talk I will briefly present Agrammon Perl6. Then I will focus on my experiences with Perl6 itself also on working with Jonathant (who will be present at the conference as well).
