A Taste of Taxonomies

A taxonomy is a tree-like data structure in which each node can trace its origin back to a root node in a unique way. If you are presented with a data file in CSV format and are told that the data therein is a taxonomy, how can you verify that claim? This presentation will introduce basic taxonomic concepts and a CPAN library, Parse-Taxonomy, which provides methods to validate a taxonomy and to transform a taxonomy among various formats such as materialized path, adjacent list and nested sets.

Perl 6 Install Fest

Bring your laptop or whatever device you'd like to install Perl 6 on. As a group we'll work through the steps required to get up and running with Perl 6. This will be an excellent prepration for March's "Wow, Perl 6! (With Zoffix Znet)" http://www.meetup.com/Toronto-Perl-Mongers/events/228600742/

This month we have three speakers:

Olaf Alders: Mocking Web Services with Test::LWP::UserAgent -- Mocking a 3rd party web service isn't just for authors of API wrappers.  It's also for consumers of them.  In this talk I'll cover why you would want to mock a web service, how you can do it and why authors of API wrappers should allow you to supply your own UserAgent object.

Dave Doyle: Intro to Apache Thrift -- Thrift is a project that the Apache Foundation took over from a donation by Facebook.  Thrift is a interface definition language and binary communication library that can generate servers and clients for a multitude of languages. We do a quick exploration of Thrift and how it can be used to provide an consume services without having to write clients for every language/protocol. 

Doug Hoyte: "Native" GUIs with perl and HTML -- Github has a project called electron which is a cross-platform GUI toolkit that is used to build, among other things, the atom editor. This talk introduces my Valence module which is a bridge between perl and electron, and you'll see how easy it is to build great looking desktop applications using your existing HTML/Javascript/CSS skills.
