glh's Journal: Upcoming .NET UG Presentation 2

Journal by glh

I will be presenting in Toledo at the Northwest Ohio .NET User Group ( on Tues, Sept 27. The topic will cover writing .NET applications using XML. I'm going to be talking about the differences of using some of the more popular .NET XML classes including XmlDocument, XpathNavigator, and XmlReader. After that I'll introduce a shared source framework and the Microsoft shared source concept. The particular framework/classes I'm going to introduce is the XpathReader, which allows for streaming XPath queries (and thus scalable XML based applications). I have also been contributing to this on the GotDotNet workspace and will share my experiences. This framework/library is a great way to use XML in your application. Slides will be posted for those of you who cannot make it :)

Upcoming .NET UG Presentation

  • Since you're covering XML topics, maybe throw in something from the SQL-XML featureset in Yukon. Perhaps a "this is how you do it in the framework, and here's how you can do the same thing on SQL Server" type of demo. That would also keep to the general theme of promoting SQL Server 2005 leading up to its November release.
  • Hey,

    I was really looking forward to viewing your presentation from afar.
    I've downloaded the zipped ppt, but I get the following error:

    PowerPoint can't read this file
    The file you tried to open may not be a Microsoft Office PowerPoint file (.ppt). Check the original file to determine the file type. You may be able to edit the file in a program designed to use that file type.
