Really Simple Syndication (RSS)
Stay up to date using our RSS feeds!
RSS is an easy way to stay up to date on the latest information from the East Central Florida Branch of ASCE. We offer several feeds to help you stay informed. To learn more about RSS please read the information below.
RSS has several meanings: Really Simple Syndication, Rich Site Summary, and RDF Site Summary where RDF in turn stands for Resource Description Framework. In any case it is a method of summarizing the latest news and information from a web site in a lightweight form that can be easily read by any of a number of news readers or news aggregators. The idea is to give users the ability to quickly obtain the latest news and updates from a site in a headline or news digest format. This in turn helps during high-traffic periods by reducing the load on the servers.
To use our RSS feeds, you need a feed reader or news aggregator installed on your computer. These are applications that can be set to read the feeds on a recurring basis, generally once an hour or so.
Here is a list of feed readers and news aggregators from the Open Directory Project.
Here is another list of feed readers and news aggregators.
You can also get news readers for your iPhone(TM), Android (TM), Windows Phone(TM), and other smartphones.
Once you have installed a feed reader or news aggregator, you simply add the feed addresses to the list of feeds in the reader. The installation instructions for the readers will help you with that. Address can be found by clicking on the appropriate section under "RSS Fields" in the navigation bar on the left-hand side of this page.
