MadCap Insider, Issue No. 1

The MadCap Insider Monthly Community Newsletter

April is a noteworthy month for MadCap Software. On Sunday, April 2, the MadWorld 2017 technical communication and content strategy conference kicked off at the Hard Rock Hotel in downtown San Diego, California.

The fifth annual user conference features an agenda packed with valuable takeaways – including case studies and advanced techniques – all prepared and presented by an impressive list of professional speakers. If you weren’t able to join us this time around, we hope you can attend next year’s conference in San Diego. The Call for Papers for MadWorld 2018 will be announced in June, along with the 2018 conference dates.

Take a look at what else is in store for the month of April at MadCap Software.

TESTIMONIALS FROM AROUND THE WEB

We are now LIVE using MadCap Flare as our documentation system. Customers are loving it!

–Leslie Bailey | @thetwlady

Finally ordered a copy of #MadCapFlare for Programmers and am so pleased I did… it’s great #ILoveFlare

–Louise Fahey | @LouiseF_90

What I love about Flare - the best small team multi-authoring environment bar none. I know there is disagreement about this, but I have never had a problem with OOTB revision control and have successfully supported teams of up to 12 writers on multi-year products without losing a single word to merge errors.

–Colin Walters | Consulting Technical Writer

I am so excited to say that our tech comm team in the Services organization at Medtronic has published our first two service manuals converted from Adobe® FrameMaker® to MadCap Flare.

–Trish Edwards | Senior Technical Writer
