  12. 12. AppliedTrends Mashups http://chicago.everyblock.com Section 2.0 A quick look at what mashups are and how they are built. More later. Introduction to Mashups
  13. 13. AppliedTrends Mashups Mix Data ★ create new data or services ★ new insights ★ use APIs or public data A “mashup” is a lightweight web application created by combining information or capabilities from more than one existing source to deliver new functions & insights.
  14. 14. AppliedTrends Characteristics Creation Skills & Data Sharing ★ Rapid creation ★ Requires less ★ Often web (days not technical skills based months) ★ Often mixes ★ Usually ★ Reuses internal and shared via the existing external browser with capabilities, but sources other users delivers new functions + insights
  15. 15. AppliedTrends Mashups Data Source: A (feed) mash/combine Results Data Source: B (feed) (+ use widgets) Wow
  16. 16. AppliedTrends Mashups filter/arrange Data Source: A Presentation (feed) (+ use widgets) Nice
  17. 17. AppliedTrends Feeds Section 2.2 Discover the building blocks of Mashups and where to find them Web feeds, RSS, Atom etc...
  18. 18. AppliedTrends Feeds ★ A web feed is a data format used for providing users with frequently updated content ★ Users can subscribe to RSS or ATOM via the feed reader in browsers
  19. 19. AppliedTrends Feeds ★ Feeds emerging as a common way for organizations to expose existing enterprise data to be consumable ★ Feeds can be created from enterprise, departmental and personal sources like Excel, databases or web sources
  20. 20. AppliedTrends Feeds, Feeds and more Feeds Feeds are the building blocks of mashups No feeds = no data = no mashing
  21. 21. AppliedTrends Finding Feeds on the Web and In-House http://www.programmableweb.com Websites like RSS Feeds (i.e. Your own Excel or Programmableweb BBC News) database data
  22. 22. AppliedTrends Widgets Section 2.1 How widgets can be used with and for mashups Wigdets in relation to Mashups
  23. 23. AppliedTrends Widgets a.k.a Gadgets A widget is a small application or piece of dynamic content that can be easily placed into a web page
  24. 24. AppliedTrends Widgets (Pic and Mix) Widgets can be used in Mashup platforms to pass and transform data data These “Mashable” widgets pass events, so that they can be wired together to create something new
  26. 26. AppliedTrends Mashup Discussion Section 2.3 So what are mashups and can I see some examples on the web? Example mashups, inspiration and explanation
  27. 27. AppliedTrends Types of Mashup Consumer Mashup and Data Mashup
  28. 28. AppliedTrends Mashup Examples http://www.stupeflix.com/wikivideos/stupeflix/ http://www.programmableweb.com http://chicago.everyblock.com Mashing: WikiPedia, Flickr, Google Maps, Crime Data, Events, Gov Data...
