I'm a part time prgramming enthusiat and have developed several web applications on earlier version of ASP. I'm preparing to get back intoit and have been searching for ways to accomplish my goals. One goal is to acquire data from a website feed and break it down for use of specific data in my application. Specfically I want to be able to grab scores from NFL games so that I can use them in my application. What I believe I need to do is write my ASP.NET MVC code to capture an RSS feed, then parse the feed (I'm guessing using C# string commands to break the feed down to variables that I can cast as integers and then use in my application.) What I am uncertain of is whether this is the best approach. Is what I am attempting to do best done with ASP.NET, XML and C# or should I be considering another approach? Any pointers or suggestions for good examples/tutorials/books that you would recommend would be greatly appreciated.
