The Atom Publishing Protocol has emerged from its origins as a protocol for publishing content to a generic way to build services for all types of applications. Built on the popular syndication format, Atom, it provides a RESTful approach for building services which is based on the concepts of collections and resources. Many applications can be broken down into this model and take advantage of the ubiquity of the Atom format for their application. Combined with microformats and microcontent the AtomPub model becomes even more powerful. One great example of this is the Google API for interacting with Google Base, Calendar, Spreadsheets, etc. All these APIs are all built on AtomPub. This talk will look at how you can go about building your services with AtomPub. We'll try to understand when and why you would want to use APP, and just as importantly -when not to.
