Parrot is a virtual machine (VM) - a CPU done in software - able to
compile and execute its own flavor of assembly language, and to run a
frozen image of such compiled byte code.

This talk will cover Parrots architecture (Compiler (or assembler if
you like), Optimizer, and Interpreter) and its main features and
subsystems like string, IO, and memory management.
