In this talk we will look at a series of features that have been introduced, or reintroduced, in languages designed this century, for modern needs an environments, which are multilingual, dynamic, based on multicore processors and cloud and web ready. These features, many of them taken from functional languages, others from object-oriented design, and others from not clear where, will be introduced with the languages that use them and why they make computing more fun or more straightforward.
Eventually, we'll see how they are used in Perl 6, what additional and interesting features it has, and some programming patterns that put them to good use.
