One of the modules I have opted to take this year at uni is Web Services. Having had a hand in updating websites and creating a few, I figured this would be a good opportunity for me to look at ways I can learn more about one of the main voluntary work tasks that I “fell” into a few years back. There are the usual requirements to do coursework, classwork, study for an exam etc etc. As I have discovered the bulk of webservices all seem to centre around XML and applications. Having done some digging around on YouTube I came across these videos from Adam Khoury. If you get a chance they are well worth checking out.
I also did a bit of checking up on free xml editor programs and decided to go for CAM Editor, which I then downloaded to my computer so I can get on with the business of setting up XML files and validation files. Hopefully I’ll even be able to write WSDL files which will work in the coursework that I am doing with a fellow student. One thing is certain, I never dreamed I would end up doing any of this kind of stuff. It never ceases to amaze me what God will do with our potential if we will overcome our fear and let Him.
