  [ANN] XSLT-UK 01 Announce. 

The first XSLT-UK conference will take place in the UK,
Sunday and Monday, 8-9 April 2001 in Keble College, Oxford,
England.  This is a two day event focussed on technical
development and use of XSLT, XPATH and XSL.

     XSLT Training.

     Ken Holman from Cranesoft will be presenting a full two
     day XSLT training session immediately prior to the
     conference, again in Oxford, on the 6th and 7th, for
     those wishing to get up to speed in this new
     technology. Since this will be restricted to the first
     50 places, please ensure you register early.

This is to be the first of its kind in the UK, covering
this fast developing field, and will have a technical focus
for users and implementors. In other words, this is a
conference by developers and users, for developers and
users. Expect interesting presentations on a range of XSL
related topics from some of the worlds leaders in this
technology. If you come wearing a suit we won't actually
turn you away, but we don't need your business so badly that
we're willing to lower the level of discourse.

     Outline Programme After a brief outline of the
     technology, approaches to XSLT will be covered,
     including the switch from procedural programming, and
     some design patterns for XSLT.  This is followed by
     presentations on middleware usage, one of todays hot
     homes for XSLT.  Example applications of XSLT will be
     presented, followed by an introduction to XSL-FO,
     showing the potential of this working draft in the area
     of high specification layout for paper and the web.  A
     presenters panel will be aligned to answer any of your
     questions at the end of day 2.  Who should attend?
     Implementors, developers and users.

    Duration?  It will be a full two days providing a chance
    to meet the names on the XSL list and put a face to them!
    You will have a chance to ask your questions at the
    experts panel session.

    the historic Keble College, Oxford, within easy reach of
