Because more publishers and book designers are beginning to create their own eBooks, the need for hands-on training is growing rapidly. To help fill this need, eBook Architects will be teaching an eBook Production Workshop in Austin, Texas this summer. If your job involves creating eBooks for anyone, you cannot afford to miss this Workshop.
The Workshop will consist of two days of training and a third hands-on work day. The training days will follow a schedule and include a specific list of topics (see below). The work day will be a time for you to bring your most difficult projects and questions and work in a cooperative environment. Joshua, Toby, and Chris (the eBook Ninjas) will be on-hand to answer specific questions about workflows, tools, processes, etc. The goal of this entire Workshop is to give you all of the information you need to get your eBook production processes developed and to get you creating eBook Architects-quality eBook files.
The Workshop will be held Monday-Wednesday, September 19-21, 2011.
Monday and Tuesday, 8am-5pm (with a lunch break 12pm-1:30pm)
Wednesday, open 8am-5pm for work day (with a lunch break 12pm-1:30pm) If you have an afternoon flight we will try to help you with your questions in the morning.
Because on-site catering at the hotel is expensive and, frankly, unappealing, we will have a different off-site lunch experience each day, to be determined by the group. Some options we can choose from:
There is nothing set in stone on this yet, but we will probably have a cocktail party on Sunday night to kick off the event.
$600 per person (includes the Workshop registration and lunch all three days)
All attendees must bring their own computer (Mac or PC). All sessions will be hands-on, follow-and-do sessions. All attendees must also be familiar with the basics of ePub files, so that the workshop can start off running. If you are not at that point yet, you can set up a separate consulting time with Joshua in the weeks leading up to the workshop.
