Hands-on Introduction

A session at XML Summer School 2011

Monday 19th September, 2011

9:00am to 5:00pm (GMT)

The Hands-on Intro­duc­tion to XML is designed to intro­duce you to the many and var­ied aspects of XML design, pro­cessing and deliv­ery through prac­tical, hands-on classes where you will cre­ate your own XML documents.

You will learn how to cre­ate data struc­tures using an XML editor, cre­ate an XML schema model and parse/validate the doc­u­ment struc­ture. You will also have the oppor­tun­ity to gain an under­stand­ing of the latest XML tools and tech­no­lo­gies in the mar­ket­place, so that you can develop and imple­ment your own XML solutions.

The three day course is based around the ‘real life’ scen­ario of Erasmus Swift, a new age philo­sopher who decides to build a web site using XML tech­no­logy. It is designed to be prac­tical, inform­at­ive, and fun!

On this course you will learn about

Con­tent marked up in XML
Val­id­a­tion using XML schemas
Trans­form­a­tion with XSLT
XML tools for edit­ing and transformation
Search with XPath and XQuery
Pagin­ated out­put with XSL-FO
Trans­fer­ring struc­tured data between applications
Meta data and know­ledge in XML – the Semantic Web
Ser­vice Ori­ented Archi­tec­tures (web services)

All the soft­ware and exer­cise mater­ial used on the course is avail­able for you to take away and try out in your own time, once the Sum­mer School is over.
