Re: [xml-dev] Seek your recommendation on content for a 3-day class on XML foundations

With 3 days available, you have to make a choice between width and depth. Do you cover one approach to processing XML in detail (e.g. XSLT or XQuery or DOM or JAXB) or do you give an overview of all the possible approaches, with about an hour devoted to each?

To make that choice, you have to know what the learning requirements are. 

I've done XML + XSD + XSLT in 5 days - with very bright students - in enough depth to actually deliver some working code. 3 days is harder.

Hi Folks,

I will be teaching a 3-day class – 7 hours training per day – at my company on XML foundations.

By “XML foundations” I don’t mean to imply that the course is exclusively on XML. I can cover other XML-related technologies.

The class will be a combination of lectures and hands-on lab exercises.

The students are professional engineers and have no familiarity with XML. Possibly they have some familiarity with HTML.


1. What topics should I cover?

2. What are the key points that the students should take away?

3. Suppose I was teaching this class 10 years ago. How should today’s class differ from the class of 10 years ago?
