Elevator Pitch:
Part history lesson, part practical talk. Learn the origins of coercion in Raku from the very beginning and discover how the COERCE protocol came to be and how it can be used in modules today.

This talk will begin by looking at the original synopses and how coercion was (and was not) eventually implemented. It will then look at the more recent history and the reason a new system was needed. Lastly it will provide advice for developers on how to take advantage of the protocol to increase compatibility and reduce code noise.
