Ab(Using) the MetaCPAN API for Fun and Profit v2013

⬅️ Previous post: Sifting Through the CPAN

❤️ It's great to see you here! I'm currently available on evenings and weekends for consulting and freelance work. Let's chat about how I can help you achieve your goals.

I'll be speaking about using (and abusing) the MetaCPAN API on day 2 of YAPC::NA. If you think you might be attending (or even if you're not), I thought I'd post some links to some helpful info. No, you don't need to do any prep for this talk, but for those who are interested, this is just some background info that will help you get your head around MetaCPAN.

This talk will touch on and expand on some of the points I discussed last year, so you could have a quick look at last year's slides. I've also put together some sample code for tomorrow's talk. If you use Carton, you can follow the instructions in the top-level README to get started in just a couple of minutes.

On a barely related note, iCPAN 2.1.0 is now in the app store. I used it on the flight down to prepare for my talk. Seemed to work well for my purposes. :)
