O’Reilly releases ‘Content Syndication with RSS’

O’Reilly has announced the release of “Content Syndication with RSS” (US$29.95), authored by Ben Hammersley. Originally developed by Netscape in 1999, RSS — which can stand for RDF Site Summary, Rich Site Summary, or Really Simple Syndication — is an XML-based format that allows Web developers to describe and syndicate Web site content. This book “offers webloggers, developers, and the programmers who support them a thorough explanation of syndication in general and RSS in particular. Written for Web developers who want to offer XML-based feeds of their content, as well as developers who want to use the content that other people are syndicating, the book explores and explains metadata interpretation, different forms of content syndication, and the increasing use of web services in this field. If you’re interested in producing your own RSS feed, this step-by-step guide to implementation is the book you’ll want in hand.”
