Learn to use LINQ to XML and XPath queries to process XML files in C#. Use XML serialization to store .NET objects in an XML file and deserialize XML back into a .NET object. Learn to cache frequently used data in a local XML file.

What are the best methods for reading and writing XML documents in C#? In this course, XML Fundamentals in C#, you will gain foundational knowledge to process XML files and use XML to enhance your business applications. First, you will learn to process XML documents using LINQ to XML. Next, you will discover how to write XPath queries. Following that, you will see how to add, edit, and delete data within an XML document. XML serialization is explored to show you how to save a .NET object to an XML file, and then restore that XML as a .NET object. Finally, you will explore how to cache frequently used database data as a local XML file, and to detect when server data changes so you can update your local file. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of XML needed to process XML documents in C#. Software required: Visual Studio 2017, .NET 4.5+, SQL Server, C#.
