XML Level 1 is designed to introduce you to the Extensible Markup Language and how it can be used in application development.

XML course offered at MasterGrade.

Who should attend?

The Extensible Markup Language is an important evolutionary step in the development of information exchange. Developers have long struggled with moving data between incompatible, proprietary systems. In addition, they have wrestled with HTML, trying to make it manipulate data in ways for which it was not designed. XML solves many of these problems because it is a system for creating open, non-proprietary markup languages.
