This course focuses on the fundamentals needed to begin building applications using XPages, such as creating a new XPage, creating a custom control, binding an XPage to a document, using @Functions in an XPage, configuring server and client-side data validation, and troubleshooting issues when working with XPages.

The format of this workshop is hands-on training in a facilitated, self-paced format. This means that you will work through the hands-on exercises at your own pace. This is different from pure self-paced learning because a facilitator will work with you to assist you with any questions or problems that you may have, as well as validate your progress through the training to ensure that all critical learning objectives have been met.
