This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at if that is a problem.

    I've searched ´OPML´ and don't really understand what I've found.. if anybody could throw some light, please?!

    I don't know much about OPML but what i know is that it is a format like that which Firefox uses to export bookmarks.

    Anyway, if you need a reader for the RSS you can use Google Reader; what is cool about it if the site doesn't offer a direct RSS link, you can use the website's direct link and Google Reader will take care of that.

    Google Reader may be found at

    If you click on managesubscriptions (bottom left) then go the Import/Eport tab, you may find there how to export/import an OPML file (a standard format) containing feeds.

    Also here:

    By the way I am not actually asking  course participants to do this (unless they want to).

    This is something like a sign up task aimed at future study group members (bit like a sign up task).

    And then later entrants may keep it up to date with new blogs, delete dead ones etc.

    I could just put up an OPML file of my own feeds but that wouldn't be any fun, would it?

    I suscribed to this one (from the link Vallar gave, list of blogs - I've started from the bottom):

    The last post it has talks about variable declarations, undefined, global and local scope..I hope to have the time to read it all!!

    but I don't know about a RSS feed direction to it.. or what exactly are we to do. It's a subject I'm totally new to (RSS feeds and readers), hope to learn more as I see you using it...

    Alright, here is a few blogs I managed to subscripe to; hopefully they are good enough:

    (Note: unfortunately I couldn't seperate which RSS to export; it does the whole thing together so there are two blogs that you may not want there, sorry).

    On the other hand if you want to find more blogs you can try these:
