The other day I received this email from a user of one of my CPAN modules. This is what makes participating in an Open Source community really worth it! The tool he's talking about is XML::Rabbit.
Recently, I was participating in the Moving to Moose hackathon at Preikestolen near Stavanger, Norway together with a lot of other Perl hackers.
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.
