The modern Web is awash with data and services just waiting to be used, but how do you make effective use of all this information? The answer lies in APIs (such as Google Maps, Flickr, and Amazon Web Services) and remixing, or mashups. Pro Web 2.0 Mashups: Remixing Data and Web Services teaches you everything you need to create useful, dynamic real–world applications using APIs, web services, Ajax, web standards, and server–side languages. All you need to make full use of this book is basic knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and at least one server–side language (such as PHP or ASP.NET).

Highlights include the following:

  • Looks at the overall shape of todays Web from a developers point of view—what are its main features, and what is available for us to use to develop applications?
  • Contains real–world examples of creating mashups using all the major APIs.
  • Contains examples written in multiple server–side languages.

What you’ll learn

  • Understand how the constituent parts of the modern Web fit together—web standards, Ajax, APIs, libraries, tagging, blogs, wikis, and more.
  • Create different types of mashup, for example mapping mashups, search functionality, calendars, RSS/Atom feeds, social bookmarking, online storage systems, open document formats, and more.
  • Build Web 2.0 applications using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Ajax, server–side languages, APIs, and libraries

Who is this book for?

This book is for any web developer who is already comfortable with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and at least one server–side language and wants to learn how to create Web 2.0 applications.
