After introducing the game we'll go over the not-yet-released client that Steffen Mueller wrote trying to figure out what it does and how does it do it? We'll see OOP (Object Oriented Perl), usage of JSON::RPC::Common of Yuval Kogman, YAML::Any, Class::XSAccessor and maybe some other stuff. We will write unit tests for the code.
I'll assume basic to intermediate Perl knowledge so if you are relatively new to Perl this can be a good opportunity to learn some more advanced techniques. Or at least to play the game a bit.
Details of the meeting can be found on the web site of the Rehovot Perl Mongers.
If you'd like to come prepared then create an empire on Lacuna Expanse and follow the in-game tutorial.
