Designing eBooks with Web Standards
RSVP Required - Standard ebook publishing requires ramping up on knowledge about various ebook formats, and then becoming familiar with proprietary ebook publishing channels like Kindle, iBooks, etc. Wouldn't it be easier to use web standards to build ebooks, and then either serve them on the web or distribute them via mobile app stores?
What to Bring:
Laptop - (if you'd like work along with instructor's examples - you can also pre-download Sigil and the Kindle Previewer tools)
- Sigil: http://code.google.com/p/sigil/downloads/list
- Kindle Previewer: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&docId=1000765261
- HTML/CSS/JS editor of their choice
- Bonus: some way to run a local PHP server (MAMP/WAMP/XAMPP - Instructor won't cover installing a local server - those who have it can work along with instructor, those who don't can do it later or and just manually create markup directly in Sigil or their own Editor)
- if you have a PHP local server you can also download the Stacey CMS: http://staceyapp.com/
iPads, Kindles and Nooks (of all flavors)!
- Hopefully at the end, you'll have a little something personal to open up and test out in an eReader of choice!
