XSLT is what I do at my dayjob, too. I just presented
a quick tutorial (one hour) on how we like our XSLT
to be done and how to use XPath in the company. None
of the developers who needed to be there showed up.
Next week I do one to show how I use XSLT to route
messages around the company. The support guys asked
for that, since it will help them debug message flows.

Your "XSLT 1.0 Pocket Reference" is very helpful, but
I wish people would buy their own and stop borrowing
mine all the time. :-D

Today I get to see if we can use Java classes created
by a mapping tool, because their XSLT would not run on
our infrastructure (IBM's WebSphere Message Broker).
The XSLT compiled to bad Java classes, but since the
XSLT was created from Java classes, maybe the original
Java classes might work???

I've been considering both those tutorials as well as
Higher-order Perl and Intro to Rails, but I'll probably
end up in whatever isn't full when I get to registering.
At least my flight and hotel are booked. Now my employers
just have not to cancel my vacation.

My next mission, besides convincing people at work that
I know Perl and Java (most of what I was doing before
they hired me), is to get them to switch to Haskell.
