MadCap Flare for Programmers: Getting the Most Out of Flare

Aug 20, 8:00-9:00 am (Pacific Time) Online Webinar

While MadCap Flare offers many advanced authoring and multi-channel publishing features, one of its hidden strengths can be found in its open XML architecture. In this live webinar presentation, we’ll discuss some of the more advanced functionality that can be garnered when you dive into your project’s source code.

Thomas Tregner and David Owens, authors of recently released “MadCap Flare for Programmers, A guide to getting the most from Flare,” will discuss their new book and highlight some of the interesting techniques covered that can be applied to a variety of use cases, including how to use JavaScript with Flare, how to generate topics using a program, and how to build Flare plugins.

Whether you are a software programmer, a tech-savy technical writer, or an XML specialist, this webinar is for you.
