One of the hidden gems of the XML technology milieu is XQuery ... even if XML is not your thing (for example you work only with JSON) I will show you how XQuery is especially adept and super fast in terms of pure web development. And if you do happen to have a lot of XML I will also demonstrate how this concise, small data orientated language can result in serious productivity gains over other programming languages. XQuery is available today on the server, in the browser (mobile devices) and large deployments in both commercial and open source environments.
This talk will present both anecdotal and evidence based analysis showing how using XQuery can result in quicker development times over other programming languages when applied to the right scenarios and will try to help give a starting point to those wishing to investigate this extremely powerful little language.
my thoughts on fun w/ Data, MarkLogic, XQuery, fp, emacs, unix, & knows enough EBNF to be dangerous. https://keybase.io/jimfuller - not a werewolf bio from Twitter
