Hello Everyone!

Time to kick-start this blog for 2010. It is shaping up to be a REALLY busy year.

First, many thanks to all of the customers that made 2009 such a good year for us. With so many stories of companies closing their doors over the past year, we truly appreciate every single customer that helped us to stay vibrant and healthy as a company.

Since this economy has caused many businesses to cut back on travel and event budgets many of our customers won’t be able to attend trade shows or conventions this year, so we are going to do another MadCap Software Road Show for 2010. The idea is that we will try to bring some news, updates, and training to as many cities as possible for those who can’t make it to the trade shows.

Road Show Cities

The cities and dates for North America are:

San Diego, California – March 2nd

San Jose, California – March 8th

Portland, Oregon – March 10

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – March 12

Calgary, Alberta, Canada – March 15

Chicago, Illinois – May 17

Boston, Massachusetts – May 19

Rochester, New York – May 21

Orlando, Florida – May 24

Atlanta, Georgia – May 26

Additional cities may be added. If you want us to add your city to the list, just get a couple dozen of your friends to email us a request. ;0)

The agenda for the road show will be a full day of sessions covering subjects such as maximizing content reuse, strategies for multi-channel publishing, use of CSS, and much more.

International Training

While I am travelling I will also be conducting some training sessions.

Paris, France – Content Strategy Forum 2010 (April 15-16)

Dallas, Texas – Technical Communication Summit ’10 (May 2-5)

    Hi Mike
    Thanks again for the fabulous presentation yesterday in Calgary. Hope the rest of the day went fine and you continue to have success on your trip! Sorry I had to leave early – had to pick up my husband.

    That was an incredibly GREAT use of $150 ever!

    Hi Mike,
    Just wandering: Are you attending TCUK yourself this year in Oxford? I know MadCap signed up as Gold Sponsors (thanks!). We didn’t receive any presentation proposals from you when the call for papaers was open but we now have a workshop slot open on the Tuesday afternoon and wandered if you would like to take up the opportunity – inparticular, with a focus on the Madcap’s toolset strengths in the e-learning or online tutorials development area. Please let me know ASAP. Thanks, Paul
