knowledge worker tip: adding a Google Group to #Feedly using one of its RSS feeds

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/15

Today I learned that each Google Group has RSS and ATOM feeds. That allows you to add them to Feedly (a great online RSS reader that won a lot of market share when Google Reader got ditched).

This is how you do it (I’m using the Spring4D group as an example).

  1. Go to the group page https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/spring4d
  2. On the right side, click on “About” which brings you to https://groups.google.com/forum/#!aboutgroup/spring4d
  3. Copy any of the RSS or ATOM links and add it to Feedly.

Seems Delphi XE6 is welcomed: “Welkom RAD Studio/Delphi/C++Builder XE6!” (via: Barnsten B.V. – Google+)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/15

Interesting: didn’t see this on the Embarcadero site yet, so the announcment of Welkom RAD Studio/Delphi/C++Builder XE6! by Barnsten B.V. – Google+ is a bit surprising.

Edit:

Given the XE6 webinar on the 16th (that is tomorrow!), it wasn’t that surprising, but in my memory those webinars usually were before the product became actually available.

Barnsten was a tad bit faster than me picking up these two posts that had the official announcemts:

So here are some of the Embarcadero.com links for XE6:    Read the rest of this entry »
