What tracks teach XML?

Hi all, I'm working on Android Studio, and I want to learn the XML code behind the drag and drop feature of Android Studio. Can someone recommend a class/track that would teach more of the XML code behind Android applications (for a beginner)? Thanks!

Hi abbymann,

TreeHouse doesn't have a just-XML course at the moment. The Android courses touch on XML usage, and there's a course on Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), an XML markup language used to make 2D images with vectors, but if you really want to get your feet wet with how XML works, I'd recommend checking out this article, which describes itself as a guided tour of XML.

Hope that helps!

It's basically rest api. It's back end programming.

The course below:


It's also known as ajax. You use javascript or jquery to access xml or ajax.


I hope that helps. Also learn mongo and SQL. REST API is basically doing CRUD to the application, having no access to the owners database.
