I’m happy to report that our first webinar went very well today!
I honestly was not even sure if anyone would show up on a Sunday but quite a few readers did so actually. I thank them all! I think we’ll have these Sunday webinars regularly from now on. We’ll announce the topic in advance right here, on this web site. So be watching…
Below is the presentation that we went over during the webinar, with interesting questions raised.
One question that was asked concerned the future of Structured Authoring from a freelancer’s point of view.
My answer was, working as an independent Structured Authoring consultant is certainly possible. I think there will be an increasing need for such specialists in the future. I believe they will be in high demand and they will be paid well by Fortune 500 corporations to update all those legacy documents sitting in “document silos”, gathering dust.
That’s the good news.
But the bad news is Structured Authoring has a steep learning curve and if you do not invest the time and money for your training you won’t get there in a hurry. Please search this web site for Structured Authoring and DITA for more information.
