Developing for the Unknown
Today, we create content for output as online help and PDF. But what about tomorrow? Because we don’t know, it’s increasingly important to create content that’s technically clean, consistent, and maintainable or future-proofed. That requires the correct design philosophy and the correct use of control mechanisms—the subject of this webinar.
As technical communication becomes increasingly technical, as the pace of technical change increases, and as the pace of production increases, it's increasingly important to create technically clean, consistent, and maintaintable content that can compete with Web-based material. If we don't, traditional documentation and even online help will fall by the wayside. Learn why we need to adopt a Web-oriented design philosophy; the need for programming standards, design standards, and workflow changes; and the need to think of our work in strategic business terms—and how to do all this while minimizing disruption of your regular work.
