Mashups Resource Center

Building mashups is one of the hottest topics of Web 2.0. The term mashup originated in the music world—a music mashup is a remix of two or more songs to create a new song. A web application mashup combines complementary functionality from multiple web sites, e.g., combining Google Maps with Craigslist apartment listings to display on a map all of the apartments for rent in a particular neighborhood. You can create powerful Web 2.0 mashup applications in hours or days, instead of months or years if you have to start from scratch.   
    Developers have created mashups using Web services and RSS/ATOM feeds from scores of popular Web sites including Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Yahoo!, FlickR,, and many more.
    Our Mashups Resource Center focuses on the enormous amount of free mashups content available online. Start your search here for tutorials, documentation, books, articles, blogs, directories, tools, forums, etc., that will help you quickly develop mashup applications.
