Practical Transformation Using XSLT and XPath (5-hour free preview; 24 hours total)
What you'll learn
- Understand basic XML
"Practical Transformation Using XSLT and XPath" is over 24 hours of instructor lecture, with hands-on exercises and solutions, of an intensive five-day training class. The introduction/overview is free, the first two modules are free, the introduction of every other module is free, one additional lecture is free and the annexes are free: a total of 311 minutes of free preview content!
This class overviews the entire scope of the Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLT) 1.0 , XSLT 2.0 , the XML Path Language (XPath) 1.0 and XPath 2.0 W3C Recommendations, used for transforming structured information (e.g. XML to XML, XML to HTML, XML to XSL-FO, XML to text, etc.). The objectives of the course are to understand the role and utility of the Recommendations, to overview all the constructs of the Recommendations (this five-day delivery covers every element, every attribute, and every function), to design and develop XSLT scripts, and to efficiently navigate the available documentation and resources. The relationship of XSLT to XSL is explained, though details of XSL Formatting Object semantics are not included.

- Beginner XML user

By way of credentials for me writing and delivering these instructor-led courses, we've been doing this for a long time, and we believe my qualifications would compare very well against any other commercial trainer of these technologies:
- I was on the committee that developed XML from SGML
- I was the founding chairman of the XML Conformance Committee
- I was the founding chairman of the XSLT/XPath Conformance Committee
- I am a co-editor of the OASIS UBL 2.0 and 2.1 specifications
- I am the chairman of the OASIS Code List Representation Technical Cttee.
We have had the privilege to deliver the material around the world many times over the years, and I have been the instructor for all of these deliveries:
We are proud of the testimonials to our work that we've collected privately and found posted publicly:
I bring to the classroom a long history of day-to-day working with these technologies, quite unlike many (most?) other trainers. I can draw on a lot of experience producing professional results from my worldwide consulting.
