Just a reminder:
WEB DEVELOPMENT WITH XML: DESIGN AND APPLICATION
January 3-7, 2005
University of Virginia
Responding to numerous requests, ARL is pleased to announce that its
popular course, Web Development with XML, will be offered again. The
January 3-7 workshop will be held at the Alderman Library of the
University of Virginia. Taught by experienced SGML and XML developers
from the University of Virginia and Brown University, this five-day
workshop will explore XML with specific consideration of how it is used
and might be used in the creation of digital content for libraries.
While there will be some lectures, the primary source of learning will
come from hands-on demonstration and experimentation.
Topics to be covered include:
* XML: What is it? How does it differ from SGML and HTML?
* The basics of reading Document Type Definitions (DTDs) and
understanding the reasons for using them when constructing and writing
* Implementing methods of content formatting, transformation, and
delivery (including XSL, cascading stylesheets, and PERL) so the XML we
build can be delivered, read, and used in a variety of formats.
* Using XML applications to further utilize XML capabilities and
technologies in a UNIX environment.
This workshop will be particularly useful for people involved in
creating Web sites, developing digital libraries, and publishing on the
Web. Although this is an introductory course is aimed at the XML
beginner, some familiarity with the theory and practice of markup
(HTML, SGML) is expected, as are strong basic computing skills.
