CS colloquium on December 5, 2007 more...

Focused discussion of how and why to build a Topic Map. Every effort will be made to demystify the process using freely available open source automation tools. In an hour the presenter will create a very basic Topic Map based on the XTM standard. The audience will be encouraged to participate by adding relationships to the subject. Once the basic structure is created a very simple XML transformation will be performed using the open source Saxon processor and XSLT to generate viewable HTML pages. All software used will be Open Source and readily available for download.
