Take the first step toward writing custom programs by learning the essential elements of XML through easy-to-follow real-world examples. Even if you’ve never tried computer programming, you will discover how quickly you can begin writing custom programs in this course.
Introduction to XML (Self-Paced Tutorial)
XML is today’s most popular way to store and send information. In this course, you’ll master the essentials of XML through easy-to-follow, real-world examples. Even if you’ve never tried computer programming, you’ll discover how quickly you can learn to produce powerful “code.” By the end of this course, you will be surprised at how fun programming can be!
You will learn all the essential elements of programming like variables, loops, and branching. Using a full-featured design editor, you’ll see how to build efficient, professional-looking user interfaces. You will explore all the main XML techniques – XPath, XSL, schemas, namespaces, DOM, and SAX. You’ll practice using XML to search, manipulate, validate, and merge XML files and use SVG for displaying graphics like charts, drawings, and diagrams. When you’ve finished this course, you will understand how XML simplifies computer programming, and you’ll have built a surprisingly sophisticated cookbook program that displays, modifies, searches, imports, and deletes recipes stored in XML format. This is your first step toward writing custom programs or furthering your career!
