Three Forward-Looking Publishing Processes

Thursday, 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Need to produce 50+ different books per year, in five different output formats? Creating digital or print catalogs? Making custom bespoke documents for thousands of people? While humans will always have a part in designing and creating, we too often forget why we use computers in the first place: Because they’re good at doing things that we’re not so good at. This session will include:
  • Using HTML as a source format from which to create final PDF and EPUB files
  • Pros and cons of choosing an automated workflow, examples of automated workflows, and some existing tools for automating workflows
  • Managing huge amounts of data efficiently
  • Creating PDFs on the fly, without InDesign or any other traditional apps
  • Multi-formatting content for tablet, phone, print, PDF, EPUB, MOBI, web, and more
