Two Exciting Programs:
It's time to spread your wings creatively and update your technical skills! These two upcoming programs will give you the power to publish your own work, and the skill to make documents available on mobile platforms.
- Publishing and Marketing Your E-Book
- Creating a Mobile Techdoc App
Publishing and Marketing Your e-Book October 15 (Wednesday)
Do you have a hankering to see your own book in print? Other people are self-publishing and finding their audience -- why not you?
Learn how Toly Klebanov has done it and sold more than 200,000 copies. Toly will show us the nuts and bolts of methods he has used.

Building Your First Mobile Documentation App
October 18 (Saturday)
Would you like to show your manager a mobile documentation app that you created? An app that users could use to look up information they need? Then come to this workshop!
Mobile documentation apps are today what web technology was 20 years ago: a major innovation in technical communication, one that tech writers need to master and make their own.
We are confirming the location information, so keep your eye on this space!
