About this book

Explore Raku problems and solutions using the latest version of the Raku programming language. In Raku Recipes, the emphasis is on applying Raku code to various important tasks and applications including data science, analytics, microservices, and desktop/console applications. There are also fun one-liner script recipes and instructions on how to create mini-languages of your very own.    

All in all, over 70 recipes cover a broad range of the tasks and problems encountered by a modern Raku developer. You’ll be able to solve problems starting from basics such as input/output and math, to more complex domains such as microservices web sockets, web hooks, and mini-bots.
