(Ab)using the MetaCPAN API for Fun and Profit
Olaf Alders will be giving a talk at YAPC::NA 2012 described as:
MetaCPAN aims to make it fun and easy to get data about CPAN modules, releases, favourites and even CPAN authors themselves. Sites like www.github-meets-cpan.com, perlresume.org, mapofcpan.org and metacpan.org itself make use of the MetaCPAN API to deliver interesting and useful information about the constantly growing body of code in the CPAN.
This talk will touch on the various ways you can connect to the MetaCPAN API and give you some handy tips to ease you on your way to metadata joy. By the conclusion of this talk you will be armed with enough knowledge to crank out the next cool CPAN mashup before suppertime.
