Sean, I have read many articles here over the years, and many have been tutorial in nature and quite duplicative, but interesting never-the-less as a refresher. However, frankly, I would like to use a code fragment to introduce and provide some PR for my favorite programming language, Raku.

I suggest it be used as a beginning computer language instead of Python--if for no other reason than it is a C/C++-like language in its use of blocks and semicolons. Plus, it is really easier because the core language is huge and most of the required routines for common use are included without having to memorize all those add-on packages just to read and write a file. I could go on, but I'm sure you get the idea. Oh, one more thing for single-finger "typists": names can be "kebab-case" (e.g., 'my-var; instead of 'my_var').

As a simple but powerful demo of core Raku, determine the day-of-the-week of 2023-12-25 (Christmas):
my Date $d .= Date.new: 2023, 12, 25;
say $d.day-of-week; # OUTPUT: 1 [where the answer is in the range 1..7 (Mon-Sun)]
