Feedback form is now closed.
Learn about using XSLT to produce EPUB2 and EPUB3 books from XML or XHTML input as well as PDF for print with CSS or XSL-FO. You don't need previous XSLT experience but a willingness to look at a little code will really help.

XSLT can be a functional programming language or a simple template language or anywhere between. We’ll focus on the newer features of XSLT, after a quick overview.

[BYOL] If you bring a laptop with Oxygen XML Editor or Saxon 9 HE ready to run, you can follow along with some examples, and if not, that's fine too.

Competing in So You Think You Can Code? All workshop attendees are eligible! This particular workshop will touch on the following criteria, which will be used to judge your EPUB submissions: meets accessibility standards; rich navigation; adherence to standards; errors caught and fixed; and HTML updated to provide proper semantic markup. One workshop attendee will win a grand prize that includes $2,500 from Rakuten Kobo. Find out more about the competition and how to participate here.
