During the summer season of 2012 (northern hemisphere) I've had the pleasure of being the coordinator of the iPXE network boot loader's participation in the Google Summer of Code program. This is a summary of what happened during the summer.

I've just published a new project on GitHub, named znc-log-viewer, that might be useful for IRC junkies. If you use the ZNC IRC bouncer to keep you logged on to IRC all the time, you might've enabled the log module to avoid missing messages when you're not connected to the bouncer.
After I wrote that big 5-part article on WWW::LastFM / XML::Rabbit I noticed several things that could be improved. One of them was the fact that loading configuration information from a file in the home directory was a pretty generic thing to do. I decided to factor that code out and release it as a separate CPAN module that can be used by any Moose class.
In the previous article we started implementing the geo.getEvents Last.FM API call. In this article we will complete the implementation of the Event class and create a small application to display events for a specific location in a compact format.
In the previous article we finished implementing the geo.getMetros Last.FM API call with XML::Rabbit. That particular API call doesn't include a lot of interesting information, but it is useful to know which worldwide locations the Last.FM service knows about now that we're going to implement the geo.getEvents API call.
