Please see the "Instructor-led training calendar" link from our home page
for when we are training publicly around the world.
Our next three XSLFO deliveries are a 90-minute lecture at SIGS XML One in
Chicago, and a full-day hands-on tutorial at GCA XML Europe in Berlin (both
in May), followed by a two-day hands-on tutorial in Ottawa in June.
We delivered a full-day hands-on tutorial last week in Ottawa on private
contract that was very successful.
We will following the publishing pattern we developed with our "Practical
Transformation Using XSLT and XPath" book that was derived from our
training course of the same title. We develop the course, run it a few
times to ensure the material meets the needs of the audience, then put the
course material out for sale as a book. To ensure the book continues to
meet the needs of users, we provide no-charge updates to all customers of
the book and hone and grow the content based on the feedback from book
buyers and course attendees. A new edition is published every four to six
months and made freely available to all customers. A freely downloadable
preview can be obtained from the web site.
We plan our first edition of "Practical Formatting Using XSLFO" sometime
mid-year based on the feedback from the four deliveries described
above. If you have specific requirements in a book on this topic, please
let us know and we can try to incorporate your needs into the material.
Please contact us if you have any other questions.
Another option is to check out the offerings from Mulberry Technologies at
for what they teach in this area, as they are
a very competent group of experts with an excellent reputation.
