The examples in this book show you how to integrate Amazon web services with APIs from Yahoo!, eBay, Google and YouTube. You'll learn how to combine data from disparate sources to create new applications using next generation browser techniques such as AJAX, JSON and Dynamic Scripting. You will learn how to re-purpose web service data so that it can be consumed from mobile devices such as a cell phone or PDA. Because both the theory and code are explained, you'll be able to easily take the lessons in this book to build your own killer mashup applications.

This is a very comprehensive book that is well-suited to the target audience: professional developers who like "cutting code". Hence the five stars. <BR/><BR/>But cutting code is not the only way to develop mashups that invoke Amazon Web Services (AWS) or other APIs. In a future edition it would be nice to see more information on how you could use (for example) Yahoo! Pipes to develop mashups graphically. There are many examples of AWS being invoked in this way, but I guess that this book was published too early to take account of the 'easier' ways of developing such mashups. <BR/><BR/>So I say again: It's a good book, but not for beginners who want to develop mashups in a drag-and-drop fashion.Was this review helpful?
