So, you've just typed a single character into the text of the XML editor. The editor's content is updated with your input and you're ready to type the next character. Pretty mundane. Behind the scenes, however, you've just set off a flurry of events that do everything from updating the DOM to triggering validation. In this talk, we will dissect the XML editor to see what actually happens every time you enter a character, and point out opportunities for extenders to contribute.

Nick is an Eclipse Committer from IBM Rational for the Source Editing subproject of the Eclipse Web Tools Platform. He graduated from Virginia Tech with a B.S. in Computer Engineering.
