"XML Bootcamp" is a popular name. Besides the one you mention, there is
www.xmlbootcamp.com by Michael Floyd. He's also teaching a 1-day class at
XML DevCon 2000 ("Building Web Sites with XML").
At a bootcamp, your agenda is fixed. At a conference, you'll need to review
the conference program and choose your agenda. The bootcamps are five days
of instruction based on a course outline. Luckily, both bootcamps have web
sites so you can check the course content.
The conference format is different because the classes are organized by
tracks. For example, XML DevCon 2000 has six tracks with about 100 different
sessions and instructors. There are half-day and full-day tutorials for
beginners on November 12, but classes following that are organized by track.
It's necessary to consult the schedule and decide which track(s) of classes
to follow. For example, there's a track about schemas, queries, and
databases, an eBusiness track, a Java track, and so on.
