Converting Your MadCap Flare Target to an App

Track 4 MadCap Flare Mobile

So you’ve finished creating your MadCap Flare target, only to learn that management wants the content in the form of a mobile app as well. You could get IT to create the app, or convert the app yourself without extensive programming knowledge. Get the walkthrough from Neil Perlin and Thomas Bro-Rasmussen, where they’ll introduce a cloud-based tool that can turn a target into an app. You’ll learn the difference between targets and apps, as well as how to distribute and maintain the finished app.

Global Project Linking: Advanced Techniques for Sharing Files Across Multiple Projects

Track 2 Advanced Training

Two of the major goals of user assistance development are consistency and ease of maintenance. Both can be achieved by maximizing the re-use of content and key project assets (such as style sheets and skins) across multiple projects. MadCap Flare has two major features that support team collaboration across projects: Global Project Linking and the External Resources. This workshop session looks in detail at the two features, demonstrates how to set them up and use them, explains the differences between them, and describes how they can work in tandem with a source control system such as Git or SVN. It also examines ways in which you can extend the capabilities of the standard features, automate the synchronization of files between projects, or even use your own custom techniques for re-using files across projects.
