O'Reilly Open Source Convention - August 1-5, 2005 - Portland, Oregon
 Convention Coverage

Session

XQuery By Example: Making O'Reilly Books Sing and Dance
Jason Hunter, Mark Logic

Track: XML
Date: Thursday, August 4th, 2005
Time: 2:35pm - 3:20pm
Location: E142

In this session, Hunter takes some O'Reilly book content (encoded in Docbook XML) and shows various ways that the content can be repurposed and made to sing and dance online using XQuery. He'll show several code scripts, each less than a page long, that do something interesting--like combine chapters from various books to produce a dynamic table of contents or index, extract figures and graphics, perform targetted search, and print on demand.

Attendees should be familiar with XML and interested in doing more powerful things with their XML. Experience with XQuery is not required.
