” XTech 2005 is the premier European conference for developers and managers working with XML and Web technologies, bringing together the worlds of web development, open source, semantic web and open standards. This year’s tracks include:
* Core Technologies
* Browser Technology
* Open Data
Formerly known as the XML Europe conference, XTech has widened its scope to incorporate neighboring technologies from the web and business. As the use of XML broadens out beyond traditional core topics, we want to reflect that in the conference. As well as XML, XTech 2005 will cover web development, weblogging, search, the semantic web and more. “
Although I normally work with XML on a sideline (RSS and hacking XSLT), it sounds interesting.
Also interesting to see is that a lot of attendees are bloggers. All the updates can be seen at Planet XTech – Aggregated coverage from XTech 2005. They even have a wiki.
Nowadays its becoming even more common to have an online live coverage of events.
