Upcoming Talk: Content Syndication With ASP.NET 3.5 (San Diego ASP.NET SIG)
I'll be speaking this coming Tuesday (August 18th) at the San Diego ASP.NET SIG. My talk will focus on how to create and consume syndicated content (RSS and Atom) using the classes in the System.ServiceModel.Syndication, which were added to the .NET Framework version 3.5. Here is a synopsis of the talk:
A syndication feed is an XML file that summarizes a website's most recently published content. It is commonly used in blogs, news sites, sports sites, social networking sites, and other content producing websites to provide a machine-readable format of the latest content. Microsoft added a number of classes to the .NET Framework version 3.5 to ease creating and reading RSS 2.0 and Atom 1.0 syndication feeds. In this talk we'll explore the history of online syndication and see how to consume and create syndicated content in an ASP.NET web application.
The San Diego ASP.NET SIG meetings are held at the Microsoft offices in UTC and are free to attend. Best of all, there will be free pizza and soft drinks starting at 6:00 PM!!!
