QualityLogic Offers Two-Day Microsoft XML Paper Specification (XPS) Technology Training in Simi Valley, CA and Düsseldorf, Germany

Hands-On Class Is for QA and Development Teams Starting to Work With XPS

MOORPARK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 13, 2006 -- QualityLogic (, provider of leading-edge QA and QC test tools and services for the imaging and telecommunications industries, is offering two-day, technology training classes for teams of QA engineers and/or developers who are starting to work with Microsoft XML Paper Specification (XPS) technology. Held October 19 and 20 in Simi Valley, CA and November 30 and December 1 in Düsseldorf, Germany, the hands-on class is a tutorial on all aspects of XPS, including markup and packaging.

Classroom time will alternate between lectures on the technology and workshops where the teams will work with XPS. Although the class is primarily for QA staff responsible for testing XPS implementations, it is also beneficial for anyone in engineering or support roles. At the end of the class, teams will have a firm understanding of XPS and will be capable of isolating problems in an XPS package.

Students will work through exercises using the XamlPad utility provided as part of the Windows SDK. This utility allows users to write XAML markup and instantly see the results. Attendees will also debug completed XPS containers, drilling into the markup to identify problems. Students will be provided with copies of QualityLogic's Statistics Generator and PrintTicket Editor utilities for use in the class.

The price of the U.S. class is $1495 USD per person. The class in Germany is priced at $1495 USD, and an early-bird discounted price of $1295 USD is available until November 10, 2006. Attendees are responsible for their own hotel reservations and costs.

QualityLogic previously announced that it is also presenting a Fax Technology Class on October 17 and 18 in Simi Valley, CA.
