XML for Publishers at TOC

Keith Fahlgren at his TOC Tutorial, XML for Publishers

Originally uploaded by duncandavidson

I just got back from New York and the second annual O’Reilly Tools of Change for Publishing (TOC) Conference. It’s become a very impressive conference in just two years and had impressive attendance and speakers this year. There’s good blog coverage from George Walkley and pointers to more from the new TOC blog.

I had the honor of doing a tutorial on the last day and had a great time talking with and teaching an energized, question-happy audience about XML in the publishing industry. If you weren’t able to make it to TOC this year, you can pre-order the DVDs of four of the eight tutorials, including mine, and get 30% off with discount code TOCD3.
