Cndnsd Vrsn: 4 PM Thursday September 9 ACS Room 123 - XML
The September meeting of the Front Range UNIX Users Group will be held at
4:00 P.M. on Thursday September 9. Tom Cargill and Marc Rochkind will
introduce us to XML and its uses.
XML (Extensible Markup Language) is a text-based, tree-centric
W3C standard for encoding self-describing data. It is designed to ease the
interchange of diverse types of data across a variety of platforms and
applications, including the WWW.
Marc and Tom will motivate and introduce the technology, offering
a basic roadmap through the growing alphabet soup of DTD, XSL, XLL, DOM,
SAX, etc., ultimately presenting some examples of concrete working code.
Call for Work-In-Progress Reports: If you are already using XML, or are
seriously contemplating its use, please consider preparing an executive
summary presentation (<=90 seconds, <=1 foil), emphasizing your problem
domain in which XML might be applied. The goal of this WIP session is to
explore the diversity of the domains. If you would like to present, please
contact Marc (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Tom (email@example.com).
This meeting will be in room 123 of
the CU Academic Computing Center building at Arapahoe and Marine Streets in
Boulder. Marine St intersects Arapahoe at 38th St; the Computing Center is
on the southwest corner.
At our July meeting,
Liz Coolbaugh gave us a thorough guided tour of Linux distributions.
Please see our
previous meetings page for details.
There's a growing number of overdue books that we'd like to
see returned to the library... please check the
overdue book list and be sure
that your name is not on it!
This month's new books include donations from all three
publishers who graciously provide books for the FRUUG library:
Addison Wesley has provided us copies of "Enterprise Java Beans;
Developing Component-Based Distributed Applications" and "The
O'Reilly sent us a copy of "Java Servlet Programming."
The USENIX Association has updated us with copies of
The 3rd USENIX Windows NT Symposium Proceedings, and the
Proceedings of the 2nd Large Installation System Administration of
Windows NT Conference.
You may check books out using your business card as your library card;
you must be on the membership list to check books out. Books are due at the
meeting following the one in which they are checked out. If you don't
return your library books by the next meeting, you might find
yourself on our overdue book list.
We count on you returning books on time so that other members
may have the chance to use them as well.
