Media XML Boot Camp and Planet IT Enlist XMLSolutions' World Leading XML Experts

August 8, 2000 | McLean, VA

XMLSolutions Corporation, the leading worldwide provider of software for the development and deployment of XML-based applications, has been chosen to provide the XML expertise for two prominent CMP Media technology services, XML Boot Camp and Planet IT.

CMP Media's XML Boot Camp is a comprehensive, hands-on training course on XML programming. Designed for web designers/developers, java programmers and application developers, the intense five-day courses cover the ground from theory to actual development of real world enterprise applications. XMLSolutions instructors include John Evdemon, Tom Gaven, Drew Munro and Jeff Ricker.

"XMLSolutions employs the industry-leading experts in XML and a variety of disciplines related to XML technology," said Mike Gottlieb, Show Director of XML Boot Camp. "In searching for Boot Camp instructors with the knowledge, experience and industry recognition to attract other IT professionals, we wanted to go straight to an XML 'pure play' and that's why we went to XMLSolutions."

In addition, John Evdemon, chief architect of XMLSolutions and its leading syntax expert, is currently featured as CMP Media's Planet IT XML expert. Each week, questions are submitted by IT professionals visiting Planet IT's "Ask the Experts" page for technical advice in any of 17 topical areas, including data management, mobile computing and security. Evdemon's answers to XML-related questions are posted the following week for all visitors to review.

"Since our inception almost two years ago, our goal has been to create a 'one-stop' shop for IT professionals," said Anne Zieger, web design and development editor for Planet IT. "John Evdemon's expertise in the syntax of XML enables us to continue to provide a critical resource for our 150,000-plus members."

XMLSolutions is dedicated to XML as the leading technology enabling companies to achieve enterprise-to-enterprise information integration and complete, secure internet-based information exchange with marketplaces as well as supply chain members. XMLSolutions' CEO, Kevin Kail said, "We are very fortunate to have many of the top e-business experts in the world on our staff and are extremely excited to share this expertise with the XML Boot Camp and Planet IT."
