M2am XML and Tcl/Tk [Tutorials at a Glance]
Steve Ball, Zveno Pty. Ltd.
Who should attend: Developers who wish to add XML support to their applications, use XML for storing data, or process XML documents using Tcl.
XML is set to revolutionize not only the Web but also many industries and businesses, as it allows easy, robust data exchange between machines. A number of packages now exist to assist the Tcl programmer in dealing with XML documents. These tools include XML parsers, DOM implementations, and support for XML-based protocols. This tutorial provides an introduction to all of these tools and techniques for their use.
Steve Ball is Chief XML and Scripting Specialist at Australia-based Zveno Pty. Ltd. and is the chief architect of Zveno's Swish XML editor. He is the author of Web Tcl Complete (McGraw-Hill) and several Open Source software projects, including TclExpat, TclXML, TclDOM, and the Plume Web browser. Steve was first introduced to Tcl in 1993 and has hardly touched any other language since then.
