EDW 2010 Generating XML Schemas from a canonical model

Looking at the amount of material I prepared for this 2010 presentation, I do wonder how I possibly thought I could do it justice in just one hour, including two live product demonstrations 

When I first came across XML Schemas, I was struck by their simplicity and versatility. When I saw how some people use them, I realised that the days of unmanaged COBOL copybooks had returned to haunt me. This was my attempt to exorcise the XML demon.

For this relaunch on my blog I’ve added back the hidden slides, and added a few notes – it’s still essentially the 2010 presentation, so it’s likely that some of my comments on tool capabilities are out of date.


McGeachie – PowerDesigner favourites

This is my presentation from Data Modelling Zone in Dusseldorf in 2018 – showing my favourite PowerDesigner features, none of which are available in any of the major competition 🙂
