Are you tired of maintaining multiple copies of a document just so you can produce slight variations for different audiences? Do you want to create more than just a print document, but you don’t have the programming knowledge to create a website or ebook from scratch? Join Dustin Vaughn, Solutions Consulting Manager at Adobe, as he walks you through tackling these tasks and more! If possible, bring your laptop with Adobe FrameMaker 2015 installed so that you can follow along. If you don’t have access to a laptop, please don’t hesitate to join us, as you will be able to watch the process as Dustin projects his screen.
