Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Heinz Wittenbrink was born in 1956 in M¿lheim (Ruhr region). He studied literature and philosophy and worked as an editor and then a senior editor for the Bertelsmann Group. He was responsible for several CD ROMs with encyclopedic content, and later, for the development of the first free German encyclopedic website http://www.wissen.de. In 2000 he moved to a Munich-based web agency, and in 2002, founded his own company for online publishing. Since 2004 he has been a professor for web publishing at the University for Applied Sciences in Graz/Austria. He has written books and online teaching material on XML, HTML and CSS. Heinz used RSS for the first time when he developed a news service for a major German magazine publisher. He sees the ease of use and the extensibility of modern syndication formats as their major advantages. He is convinced that RSS and its successors will soon develop from syndication formats used in special contexts (news publishing, weblogs, and so on) to general formats for publishing and archiving online content.

I already got some review copies of Packt books and successfully specifically asked for reviewing this one. My idea was to fix my sites' rss feed and get an overall feel for rss "behind the curtains"

This book delivers, as it describes all kind of "rss slangs" like rss 2, rss 1 and atom in understandable, yet technical English. If you've never did some html code or similar things, this book is not for you. But if you are technical minded and would like to understand rss, you might want to give it a closer look.

Format: Paperback
"RSS and Atom" provides a good overview of the primary syndication formats on the internet. A lot of this information is already available on the internet, but this book brings it all together including the history of the varying RSS formats to the evolution of the Atom standard. It also provides detailed information about each standard, the relationship to OPML and RDF, and an appendix that serves as a great reference tool for any developer who has to work with these standards.

Format: Paperback
The book has an excellent perspective. The author seems to look at the technologies to some degree from the perspective of market opportunity, which I like. Additionally, his language is both erudite and accessible; no small feat. All in all, an excellent resource if you need a briefing on this topic.

Very poorly written, and hard to read!
If you already know everything about RSS, than it might be enjoyable.
It doesn't teach you upfront, RSS and Atom.
