[announcement] XForms and XQuery courses, June 2012 in Rockville, Maryland

[This announcement will be of interest primarily to those living
in or near Washington, DC, or planning to travel there for the
Joint Conference on Digital Libraries this June, and to those
interested in XForms and/or XQuery training.  If you know others
who meet that description, please forward this announcement to
them.  Thanks!  Others may stop reading now.]

Black Mesa Technologies is pleased to announce two hands-on
introductory courses, one on XForms and one on XQuery, to take place
in June 2012, in Rockville, Maryland (immediately before and after the
ACM/IEEE-CS Joint Conference on Digital Libraries on 10-14 June 2012
at George Washington University in Washington, DC).


   8-9 June 2012, 9:30 - 5:30

   XForms allows you to develop vocabulary- and task-specific editors
   which require less training and provide better task-specific
   support than full XML editors; domain experts can thus examine and
   modify XML encoding mor easily, and routine tasks can be performed
   more quickly and reliably.

   This course introduces XForms as a technology for building
   special-purpose XML editors with focused functionality and
   correspondingly simple user interfaces. XForms is built on the
   model / view / controller idiom, in which the 'model' is a set of
   XML documents, the 'view' is specified using XHTML and XForms
   widgets, and the 'controller' takes the form of declarative links
   between widgets and elements or attributes in the XML documents.


   15-16 June 2012, 9:30 - 5:30

   This course introduces XQuery as a flexible language for working
   with natural-language documents (books, prose, verse, drama,
   correspondence, historical documents, articles, legislation, etc.)
   encoded in XML. The focus is on the application of XQuery to
   textual material with complex and variable structure, as opposed to
   the typically simpler, more regular structures of data-oriented
   XML.  The course will cover XPath location paths, atomic values,
   sequences of values, the XDM data model, FLWOR expressions,
   function declarations, regular expressions and string manipulation,
   collections, and the full-text extensions to XQuery.


The courses will be held Friday and Saturday, 8-9 June 2012 (XForms)
and Friday and Saturday, 15-16 June 2012 (XQuery), from 9:30 a.m. to
5:30 p.m. at

   Mulberry Technologies, Inc.
   17 West Jefferson St., Suite 207
   Rockville, MD 20850
