"XTech goes beyond the press releases and into the realities and implications of XML technology itself. This is where the big players show just what they're up to. It's the place to be if you want to know what's really happening and to hear from those who are making it happen," says Jon Bosak, Sun Microsystems and XTech Conference co-chair.
XTech '99 features keynote presentations by J. Allard, Microsoft Corporation; Marie Wieck, IBM Corporation; Jonathan Schwartz, Sun Microsystems, Inc.; David Siegel, author of best-seller, "Building Killer Web Applications;" Tim Bray, Textuality, and Bosak, Sun Microsystems. Mansoor Zakaria, CEO, 2Bridge Software, will keynote the management track, addressing the next meta shift in business and computing.
A number of important industry announcements are anticipated at XTech '99. Reportedly, Sun Microsystems will announce their XML strategy during the event.
"XTech'99 is the key technical XML event of 1999 (in fact, of the millennium, if you think about it) -- we'll have the people who are building tomorrow's XML-driven Internet all together in one place for three days. Expect sparks to fly," says Tim Bray, Textuality and XTech Conference co- chair.
