Description

In today's podcast with Steven Lees we discuss FeedSync, formerly known as Simple Sharing Extensions for Atom and RSS. FeedSync can do two-way synchronization of item sets across a range of protocols and topologies, handling both insertion and deletion of items.

One of the most intriguing uses of the technology, to date, has been a project led by Microsoft Humanitarian Systems, in Afghanistan, which enables Access databases outfitted with FeedSync adapters to synchronize through a relay in challenging circumstances.

FeedSync is an extremely general mechanism which can support software-plus-services scenarios, as in the Access example, or cloud scenarios, or any combination of those styles.
