Join two of XQuery's early hackers - the co-creators of the recently-launched MarkMail service - and find out what they've learned about coding with XQuery over the past four years.
XQuery is the fastest growing query language, with all the major players embracing it in some form. As coders test its limits and capabilities, many are discovering how fast and easy XQuery can be for building agile, internet applications.
Jason Hunter of "Java Servlet Programming" fame and Ryan Grimm, O’Reilly Media’s former XQuery sage, will be your Jedi masters for the day. Their most recent creation is markmail.org, a community-focused, searchable mail archive that sets a new standard for search and discovery
You'll learn XQuery tips and tricks, plus see how Jason and Ryan make MarkMail and other XQuery applications fly. There will also be plenty of time for hands-on coding.

Download a trial license of MarkLogic Server now and start building your first XQuery internet application. Share it with Jason and Ryan to get key feedback, plus a chance to vie for "Best XQuery App" of the day. The winner will receive an 8Gb Apple iPhone.
