Meetup API

Some days you don’t have anything to blog about but you have to blog cause it’s the law.

Started digging into the meetup API today. It does not allow you to search by group ID or group name, so that required some interesting re-working of our meetup validation plans. One of the things I really like about programming is that there are always many ways of solving a problem. Some of them are wasteful and dumb, and figuring out why is fun too. While meetup doesn’t accommodate id or name requests, you can search by url name. So that’s the search plan for meetup.pizza. In case you’re wondering (I was), a urlname is the bolded section of the url below:
