Re: Why are XML crowds older?
I think that generalization is entirely incorrect. While many of the participants may well have some experience dealing with SGML they're hardly in the majority. Anyone doing XML work would certainly benefit from having an awareness of SGML but it's certainly not a requirement. Nor was it representative of any quantity of people I met with at this past conference in DC. -Bill Kearney ----- Original Message ----- From: "Dare Obasanjo" <dareo@m...> To: "Jonathan Robie" <jonathan.robie@d...>; <xml-dev@l...> Sent: Wednesday, November 24, 2004 10:23 Subject: RE: Why are XML crowds older? The demographics of XML conferences tend to be people with an SGML background which by definition skews them to be older than the average .NET or Java developer. I wouldn't consider this to be the indicative of the demographics of people using XML in their daily lives as developers. That would be like extrapolating the demographics of the users of Unicode from the demographics of the various conferences on the subject.
