XML Primer

This short, Sunday afternoon class provides a brief introduction to XML for newcomers. It takes a whistle-stop tour of the topics covered in practical detail over the three days of the Hands-on Introduction course.
After this gentle first encounter with XML you should have gained some insight into answers to the following questions:

  • What is XML?
  • Where did it come from?
  • What is it good for?
  • Why is XML important?
  • What’s the big deal for my organisation?
  • How are other people using XML?
  • What are the Golden Rules I need to know?

This course is taught by Prof. John Chelsom.
