Balisage 2009 - Running Bright in Montreal

August 10, 2009

Balisage has become for many XML (and the occasional SGML) coders the must-attend conference of the year. Run for many years as the Extreme XML Conference, the shift to the use of Balisage  - a French term best translated as running lights, such as those used to highlight a ship or an airplane runway. These markings then translate into the syntactic markings found as a key part of XML. (That Balisage continues to be hosted in Montreal, that most French belle dame of Canadian cities, probably accounts for the name as well )
