Practical Transformation Using XSLT and XPath

Feedback for 2001 Jan 8, 9, 10

After a three-day XSLT course, students were asked for the best and worst aspects of the course.

Links to feedback for some other recent courses can be found on the training page.

Best Worst
  • Instructor was patient and his presentation was very clear.
  • Too little time to cover everything, since there's also questions asked.
  • Trainer's way of presenting the information.
  • Lack of administrative preparation (missing time schedule, computers, catering, ...).
  • Getting explanations/clarification on XSL rules that I have acquired knowledge of myself from working with XSL already.
  • Not being able to 'try out' what we are learning with examples on a PC, which would have helped me understand or remember things a lot better, once I take it back to the workplace. [Unfortunately, there weren't enough computers for this hands-on course.]
  • Instructor knows his stuff (very well!).
  • Integrated well within the group.
  • Not suited (partly suited) for beginners - very technical.
  • Slides should include more diagrams.
  • Time spent on understanding node/tree relationships.
  • Polling attendees on expectations.
  • Follow-up on expectations to assure needs met.
  • Some examples on slides more convoluted than necessary.
  • Invalid examples should be better identified in slides.
  • Learned a lot.
  • Too much HTML. [Company focus is on XML-to-XML transformations.]
