The Pinto project was my first deep-dive into Moose. Now I won't do anything without it. Here's why:
Economy: Moose greatly reduces the amount of code I have to write and test. Less code means fewer bugs. And the remaining bugs that I do create are a lot easier to spot when the aren't swimming in a sea of getters/setters and other loosely related methods.
Organization: Roles, type definitions, and meta extensions each give me convenient "compartments" for my code. Each compartment is isolated, reusable, and testable. I find this much faster to write and easier to use than piling everything into traditional classes.
Community: The MooseX namespace has a ton of wonderful extensions. The've solved problems for me that I didn't even know I had.
