Web Development with XML: Design and Application
April 19 - 23, 2004
University of Virginia
Taught by seasoned SGML and XML developers from Brown University and University
of Virginia libraries, 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 lecture, the primary source
of learning will come from hands-on demonstration and experimentation.
Although this is an introductory course aimed at the XML beginner, some
familiarity with the theory and practice of markup (HTML, SGML) is
expected, as are strong basic computing skills.
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 XML content.
- 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
- Using XML applications to further utilize XML capabilities and technologies in a UNIX environment.
Instructors:Matthew Gibson, Christine Ruotolo, and Patrick Yott
