Subject RE: Is it necessary to learn XML in order to lear Maven?
Date Thu, 27 Jun 2013 15:52:29 GMT
I picked up my XML skills over many years in bits and pieces here and there.

However this would be a great place to start:

http://www.w3schools.com/xml/

Basic XML is simple, especially if you've done HTML in the past. 

Good luck and most importantly have fun!

So, how long does it take to learn XML? Can you recommend me good sources, like webpages or
books?

Thanks Cody
