Thinking of a technology career?

XML is a key technology for those entering a wide variety of technology professions. IT Training is offering two XML workshops in July focusing on major areas of XML. First, XML: The Basics, will cover the basic syntactic rules that make up an XML document and include concepts such as elements, attributes, entities and namespaces. It will also cover validation of XML documents using a Document Type Definition (DTD). In the second workshop, XML: Transforming Content with XSLT and XPath, will teach participants to transform XML data into valid XHTML using XSLT and XPath. XSLT allows a developer to transform one XML document into a variety of different formats including XHTML, PDF, and even other types of XML documents. The ability to transform XML data allows for easy reuse of information and enables a developer to display the information in numerous formats for analysis and viewing.
