I’ve just finished giving my presentation on XML & Web Services with PHP (An Overview). Overall, I think the presentation went quite well, though I had entirely too much material to cover in a very short period of time, so it was impossible to go into much depth on any one type of Web Service. This was unfortunate, but I think the “overview” nature of the presentation allowed for this top-level approach.
As promised, here are the slides from the presentation (PDF, 2 MB), and what follows is the list of links for further reading:
