Content Syndication by Jim McKeeth
TYPE: Regular Session
LEVEL: Intermediate
ABSTRACT: With the rise of SPAM many web consumers are afraid of giving out their mailing list.  This creates a gap where sites are unable to notify their past visitors of updates to the site.  Enter newsfeeds or content syndication.  The idea is an XML version of the web site's content (or a summary there of) is provided.  This XML file can easily be parsed by a program and then either redisplayed (syndicated) on another site, or provided for a user in a interface similar to a mail program or a newsgroup reader (call an aggregator).  

First we will look at the different standards and what the advantages and disadvantages are of each.

Nest we will look at creating feeds in each format.  

Then we will look at consuming these various feeds.  Issues specific to each standard will be addressed.  

Finally we will take a brief look syndication and aggregation issues.

Upon completion of this session the attendee will be ready to add a news feed to their online content, and also able to create applications to consume newsfeeds from other sources.

Practical examples in Delphi and C#.
