Librarian at Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca, Bonaria Biancu will show how mashups work, a ‘behind the scenes’ look. The chapter will go over some of the web technologies behind mashups (XML, SOA -> Rest&Soap, Ajax, Web services, APIs). In addition to explaining the technologies, Bonaria will includes information on tools for web developers interested in developing their own mashups.
