RSS and Atom are the tools that can be used by developers to provide better access to information for users. You don’t need to be an experienced programmer to use this book. However, a little knowledge of programming would be an advantage. According to the authors, this is the first book to cover both RSS and Atom together. Therefore, they have given an introduction of all current and coming versions of RSS and Atom. The step-by-step information provided in the book about the process of producing, aggregating and storing information feeds can help you easily produce client software and websites. You can use RSS and Atom in a wide range of settings. Keeping this in mind, the book offers examples using a number of programming languages such as Python, Java, PHP and C #. The author has provided various approaches to storing feed data, from XML to SQL to RDF. It has also covered two tools; XQuery and XSLT which you can use to select and manipulate a portion of an RSS or Atom feed. You will also get to know about the newest use of RSS which is podcasting MP3 audio files to iPods or other MP3 devices. A nice book for Web developers with a lot of information about the use of RSS and Atom.
