We have updated the list of AWS Articles and Tutorials. Many of these articles are based on ECS 4.0; this could be a great way for you to learn what you need to know in order to upgrade your application to the newest version.
The site includes a browse hierarchy based on the AWIS Browse Category function, along with a search engine powered by the AWIS Web Search function, and advanced "whois" functionality powered by the URL Info function.
Riaan (author of Amazon Messenger) blogged about his experiences with ECS. It is great to know that our efforts are appreciated, and that we are meeting the needs of developers with our developer program. Thanks, Riaan!
The Business::ISBN Perl package should be useful to developers building ECS-powered applications (courtesy of brian d foy, who prefers not to capitalize his name).
This package provides methods to create and validate ISBNs, and to extract data within the ISBN, including the publisher code and country code. It can also convert the ISBN to an EAN (European Article Number) and return a barcode image of the ISBN.
Courtesy of one-time Amazonian Alan Taylor, comes a reference to the Amabuddy. Using Amabuddy, you can dial a number with your phone, enter in an ISBN or UPC, and find out more about the product including its customer rating, Amazon price, and lowest used price via voice response.
