Event Details
As designers and publishing specialists, keeping abreast of new technologies is a growing challenge. Belonging to the Adobe Community and its user groups affords us opportunities that otherwise would not be available. Did you ever wonder how the heavyweights of publishing get the job done?
We are delighted to announce the details of our first 2014 IDUG event featuring Jacquelynne Hudson, Manager of Digital Content Development, Simon & Schuster, New York. Ms. Hudson will give us an inside look at ePubs from an enterprise point-of-view.
Join us as Jacquelynne covers the following key points:
The difference between reflowable and fixed layout eBooks
What it means to stay in the forefront of the publishing industry today
What it takes for Simon & Schuster (S&S) to stay current with changing technology
Where ePubs are headed in the not-too-distant-future (limitations and opportunities of ePubs)
A look at the S&S workflow
Best way to handle images and illustrations
How to handle footnotes, TOCs, and hyperlinks effectively
How to fix things that break (troubleshooting and testing)
How S&S provides files to its clients (understanding different formats)
We would like to especially thank MacMedics and ThinkBig!LearnSmart for being our 2014 Chapter Gold Sponsors.
