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

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.
