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:

  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:


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.
