STORY: SnagIt and the Screen Capture World

Dan the technical writer thought his date was going pretty well. They'd
already out to eat, and now they were walking over to the ice cream parlor
in the outdoor mall.

They passed a home decorating store, and Alyssa said, "Oh! Do you want to
stop in here - I can show you the globe I just bought for my living room."
Dan nodded appreciatively as she showed it to him and described how useful
it would be for reference purposes.

They passed a computer store and Dan thought, "What the heck?" He said
aloud, "Do you want to stop in here - I can show you something on the
Internet." They used a display terminal to log onto the Internet, and Dan
logged onto www.techsmith.com to show off SnagIt - the leading screen
capture program.

He guided her through the Web site and explained how SnagIt could capture
anything off a PC screen - including text, all images simultaneously from
a Web site, short videos, menus - anything you could see on the screen.

He showed her some tutorials, customer interviews, user samples and
feature pages. He snuck a look. She was still interested!

"Anyway," Dan straightened. "As a technical writer, I use SnagIt a lot,
because it's so useful to me."

"This is so interesting - I can definitely see how it'd be helpful!"
Alyssa said. She clutched at his arm and looked into his eyes.

"SnagIt has a lot of exciting features," Dan said, "but the most exciting
one may be . . . that you're looking at it."

They embraced in the middle of the aisle, oblivious to the stares of
strangers.

"That's the third girl that guy's brought in here this month," an
incredulous salesman said to his coworker.

TRAINING: SPEED UP YOUR XML IMPLEMENTATION BY LEARNING REAL WORLD XML
HANDLING

TRAINING CLASSES (2) COMING UP:

1) XML for Single Sourcing and

2) XML for Database Publishing

Bright Path Solutions offers a variety of XML classes, from beginning
classes through very advanced topics. Some classes teach certain
XML-related tools, while others are generic XML classes. More information
is online at http://www.travelthepath.com/training/xml.shtml .

April 28-30, 2003 we are offering "XML for Single Sourcing." You've heard
how XML can be used for all kinds of things; now learn how to apply it to
your publishing. We will teach you how single sourcing with XML can work,
and how you can create customized and personalized documents in multiple
formats, including PDF, HTML, and more.

May 5-7, 2003 we are offering "XML for Databases." This class is taught
by Mr. Michael D. Thomas! Over the course of the three days, attendees
will learn about how you can mate XML with database technologies. The
class includes both lecture and hands-on exercises. Both relational and
native XML databases will be covered. XML and relational database basics
are first reviewed. Then, the attendees will learn about different
architectures of storing XML and how that affects system design. XSLT will
be covered and used to teach XPath, a key search language for XML. The
XML-SQL and XSQL architectures are covered as ways to leverage XML
technologies in conjunction with relational data. You'll learn how to use
XQuery and XQL to query multiple XML documents. An overview is given of
how to use XML in conjunction with the various SQL databases and how SQL
is being extended for better XML integration. The class concludes with an
examination of how to use the popular programmatic APIs (JDOM, Xerces)
with XML and Relational DBs.

Contact George Luke (mailto:gluke -at- travelthepath -dot- com or 919.481.0393) if
you
would like more information about this class or are interested in
registering. The class is currently 1/3 full, so don't delay!
