Genie: Intro to Genie: HTTP Feed

completed by: Mayank Madan

mentors: AJ Williams, Amaury Medeiros, Arc Riley, David Czech

Genie is a relatively new language similar to Python but compiles to C. We use it because its easy to learn, works well with many of our libraries, and is not itself a runtime dependency. This beginner task is to build a basic familiarity with the language.

Using the documentation, our codebase as working examples, and other students for help - build a small Genie-based application which requests an Atom feed over HTTP and prints to stdout the title and url for new items only.

While working on this task you should join and remain in #CopyleftGames on Freenode to get help, feedback, and guidance from mentors and other developers.

When you've done, upload your work to the task.
