Best Worst
Hands-on exercises, very knowledgeable about subject matter. Not enough exercises.
Hands-on exercises. SGML parts confused me with XML.
Hands-on time - would have liked to have had more. Should have written DTD/XML files from scratch from beginning to end.
XML transformations, XT. Thanks! I learned a lot! XML/XMetaL tutorial (day 1).
Differences between XML and SGML with hands-on. -
- Want more hands-on with XML conversions/transformations.
Hands-on portions & handling of different skill levels of attendees. Comment on dogs.
Good mix for level of students. Need more hands-on.
The explanations of elements, attributes, entities and processing instructions. More hands-on - more time.
Stepping through W3C Recommendation for XML and going over how to read the Recommendation. Too much lunch can make me sleepy. The food should have been easier to resist! I guess it would have been nice to spend more time looking at the various technologies that surround XML - Schemas for instance - although we certainly touched on most of them. I can't really think what I would have cut out, though - maybe forcing them into the overview day.
