John Dilbeck, a computer consultant and metalsmith, says he’s updated the bookstore on his site to take advantage of Amazon’s recently announced web services.
Eight days ago, Amazon.com announced a new version of their web services that gives developers access to their huge database of products. When I got the notice, I jumped on it. After researching several perl scripts that would do most of what I wanted, I chose AmazonProductsFeed by MrRat to implement on JohnDilbeck.com. Working with MrRat, I suggested several improvements and bug-fixes to his script and added a few additional features that are only available, to my knowledge, at JohnDilbeck.com.
