XSD – XML Schema Quick intro

On this quick post i will try to explain the basics of understanding a .xsd file.

What is a XSD file ?

XSD stands for Xml Schema Definition, and has the name indicates defines every element on your XML file.

Simple Element

A simple element is one element that contains only text, can’t contain any other element.

Example of a simple element:

<xs:element name=”age” type=”xs:integer”/>

This will result on the following XML data:

<age>12</age>

18 Months in business

Been a while without writing on this blog, wasn’t the work, neither the lack of time, was just too much distraction. I am now celebrating 18 months and some days working as independent contractor, and I must admit, what a roller coaster has been. Since i left the great adventure that was GuestCentric and my many great friends i left there, worked on so many projects and so many people, i can’t remember all now, there were great moments to remember and others no so good.

Working as independent contractor has pro’s and con’s, will try to enumerate some below.

Pro’s

Flexible schedule and working hours

As independent, there is one thing i don’t give up, i have my own schedule and working hours, and i work on the days i want, as long as i deliver what i agree with the customer, in terms of deadlines and deliverables, all good.
