I read through the Manual and Cookbook, but the syntax and concepts were
different enough from standard Perl to make it hard to get my arms
around. I think my attempt at writing code from scratch using Moose
made it hard to digest.
What finally got me over the hump was writing Catalyst and
HTML::FormHandler based code that made use of the fact that both
packages are now written in Moose. Once I started to read Moose code
and write code for Moose APIs, things started to click. Now that I
have, I would much rather write Moose code than standard OOP.
