Details

For our May MUGL meeting we are very honored to have Dr. Jeni Tennison (http://www.jenitennison.com/) as our featured guest. While in Prague I was able to convince Dr. Tennison (who gave the keynote at XML Prague 2012 (http://www.xmlprague.cz/)) to speak to the MUGL in May. Jeni doesn't do many events like this so we're doubly lucky that she's agreed visit us.

Dr. Tennison's interests are far ranging and tend toward the academic, but she is perhaps best known for writing three XSLT books: Beginning XSLT 2.0, Beginning XSLT and XSLT and XPath On The Edge.

Topic of her talk: "I can talk about legislation.gov.uk (http://legislation.gov.uk/) and how we're using MarkLogic within it, and *not* using ML for some of the new features that we're supporting."

As a warmup band we also have Philip Fennell with a short talk on the topic of "MarkLogic and the Linked Data Connection", about using MarkLogic with triple stores and running SPARQL queries via the SPARQL HTTP Graph Data Protocol and the SPARQL Protocol.

This will be a great meeting, you won't want to miss it.

We also have a new venue, which should be an improvement over the classrooms and conference rooms we've had so far. This one will be in the upstairs function room at the Theodore BullFrog Pub (http://www.theodore-bullfrog.co.uk/) a few steps from Charing Cross. We have a private upstairs meeting room with our own bar and food supplied by the pub.

If you plan to attend this meeting, please signup to secure your slot. Space is limited and we'll need to tell the pub how much food to prepare.

Even though this meeting is still almost two months away, I encourage you to claim your spot now so you don't get left out. I also suggest subscribing to the MUGL calendar so that you'll be reminded and also automatically see future meetings in your calendar.
