xmlhack: developer news from the XML community
What is xmlhack.com?
xmlhack.com is a web site covering essential news, issues, opinions and programming advice from the XML developer community.
It aims to:
provide succinct and informative summaries of current issues and emerging technologies in the XML world
promote XML and its uses among developers: particularly with those who don't have the time to read five mailing lists every day!
recognize and reflect the distinct flavor of the XML community
cover discussions as well as projects
help new users find their way among the hundreds of different directions XML is going
give developers another way to find related projects and cross-pollinate ideas
Why another XML site?
There are some excellent XML resources already on the web, such as Robin Cover's XML/SGML pages. Why do we think there ought to be another?
Accessibility: it requires a lot of time to get deeply into XML development issues. By reading xmlhack you get plain-language introductions to technical matters before diving into the detailed stuff.
Community: we want to create somewhere that reflects the humor, expertise and opinions of XML developers.
Timeliness: xmlhack will help readers find projects and discussions as they happen.
Depth: xmlhack will provide context for news without requiring readers to spend hours poring over a story.
