Workshop 1 Term 2 - RSS and PHP

A voice message (2 min 16 secs)

In this workshop we will continue the work looking with PHP and the SimpleXML class by using this approach to transform data from an RSS feed (a weather feed from the BBC).

You will also compare three sources of data - from the Weather Channel,. Yahoo and the BBC to identify differences in both structure and content of these data sources, and explore the reasons for these differences.

You will also be introduced to the notion of namespaces and the basics of location data, in preparation for work with Google Earth in the next workshop
