Summary: This is the first lesson of a series of XML discussion. I am doing to discuss the details of XML as it applies to the .NET Framework. Some of the subjects we are going to discuss are: XML, XSLT, XPath, reading and writing XML documents, validating XML documents, and using XML in web services and SQL Server. In this video we start with a quick introduction to what XML is (a language used to describe data). We talked about the benefits of XML (being a W3C standard, self describing and extensible). Finally, we started a new windows application that will load an XML file from the hard drive and show it in a text box.
