Course Description

"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 http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt, XSLT 2.0 http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt20, the XML Path Language (XPath) 1.0 http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath and XPath 2.0 http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath20 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.

Note 1) the lecture makes reference to exercise files in .EXE and .TAR.GZ formats that cannot be downloaded from this site. These contain the identical contents as the .ZIP file, including all invocations required for non-Windows environments. Simply use the .ZIP file for unpacking and then follow the platform-specific instructions.

Note 2) a student has kindly pointed out that the "data2" exercise file is different than what is used on the video. I've attached a supplemental ZIP file to this lecture 10 with the correct version of the exercise.

Instructor Biography

G. Ken Holman , CTO, Crane Softwrights Ltd.: consulting and training services worldwide in XML/XSLT/ XQuery/XSL-FO/UBL/code lists/&c.

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:

  http://www.CraneSoftwrights.com/bio/gkholman.htm
  Of note:
    - 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:

  http://www.CraneSoftwrights.com/training/pastsch.htm

We are proud of the testimonials to our work that we've collected privately and found posted publicly:

  http://www.CraneSoftwrights.com/training/testimon.htm

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.

    • Rick Quatro

    More like a university than a course

    I am working through this course for a second time and I am still amazed at the level of detail presented here. XSLT has been tough for me to understand because it is different from the procedural programming languages that I know. I generally learn well from books, but this course has really opened my understanding of XSLT. Ken really knows XSLT and presents the materials well. You are not just getting an overview, but a thorough knowledge of the language. I just completed a paid XSLT job for a client using techniques from this course. I highly recommend it.

    • Philippe Stefano

    Very educational and complete from the ground up!

    As a total beginner with XSLT, I chose to follow this course based on the instructor reputation and his expertise as member of the specification group. Each concept is nicely introduced and then progressively deepened to end with some exercises and their solutions. Thanks for all the efforts made in this course to help to flatten the learning curve of XSLT.
