For the second year in a row, MarkLogic is very excited to be sponsoring XML Prague, which will take place March 26 - 27. This is one of the go-to events for the world-wide XML community. The themes this year are focused on "Web and XML" (from the conference site) :
- XML as new lingua franca for the Web. Why did it never happen?
- HTML 5 and XHTML: breaking-up, coexistence or convergence?
- JSON and XML love-in: how to enable Web Apps and Web Widgets?
- XML Databases role in Web architecture.
- XML and the emerging Semantic Web.
- XML-based formats for electronic books.
A number of MarkLogic folks will be participating, including:
- John Snelson (@jpcs), who is giving a session on Declarative XQuery Rewrites for Profit or Pleasure
- Norm Walsh (@ndw), who is providing an update on the The W3C HTML/XML Task Force
- Jason Hunter (@hunterhacker), who is giving a session on 'A JSON Facade on top of MarkLogic Server'
If you're going, also be on the lookout for a poster for work that Marklogician Eric Hennum has done with Vyacheslav Zholudev of Jacobs University Bremen on XSLT and XQuery tag libraries. See http://code.google.com/p/xstag/.
