This hands-on course will introduce students to the fundamentals of the XSL
Transformation language (XSLT) for manipulating and transforming XML
documents and data. At its core, a transformation expressed in XSLT
describes rules for transforming input data into output data.
Some of the rules and topics we'll cover will include:
- XPath 2.0 and 3.0 basics and functions
- XSLT templates, template rules, and template processing
- XSLT variables
- A host of XSLT functions
- Repetitive and Conditional processing
- Using XSLT to work with and output JSON
We'll focus primarily on XSLT v.2.0 and the latest XSLT version, v.3.0.
As we learn how to build XSL stylesheets, we'll also focus on some best
practices around XSLT structure, syntax, and approaches to transforming
Students should have a basic knowledge of XML and XPath before starting the
course, but no knowledge of XSLT is necessary.
