MSDN now has RSS feed

MSDN has recently introduced RSS feed for their news. I was thinking about displaying that news on a first page of dotSITE Portal. During the implementation interesting idea came up to me. Those of you, who aggregates RSS feeds in their ASP.NET portal and still does not use cache, should consider doing that:

  • It increases performance.
  • What's more important it makes your app much more stable. There might be a case when your RSS provider will go down. If you are cachingĀ its feed you significantly decrease the probability of errors on your page.
