We have an Excel file itemizing various RSS feeds on the Web. We require someone to create a set of instructions in a predefined format (to be explained later) that will allow us to extract various key pieces of data from the RSS feed article.
For example, for each RSS article inside the RSS feed that provides a list of events in New York City, we would like to know when the event starts, ends and where it takes place. Since different RSS feeds contain this type of information in different layouts, this process needs to be done for every RSS feed in our list.
A set of instructions in a predefined format for each processed RSS feed.
We will manually test each set of instructions and evaluate the results.
