ANNOUNCE: Free Release of Leading Screen Cap Software! SnagIt 7.1
Available!

Dan the technical writer moved too close to the car in front of him,
fighting road rage. He squealed to a stop in the parking lot, raced
into the office, and pushed past two coworkers talking the hallway.

"Dan - what's the big hurry?" one called after him.

He didn't pause, but instead turned his head to yell, "New version of
SnagIt is out today - need to know what's new!"

He threw himself down in front of the computer, yanked off his jacket
and panted as he brought up the TechSmith site. He said aloud, much
like a cheer, "New outputs - Program and Instant Messenger!"

"Profiles Import/Export!" he yelled louder.

"Improved Web Capture!" he shouted.

"Better Automatic File Naming!" he hollered.

Dan thought of the hours ahead of him. He was going to play with his
new version of SnagIt all day long. And the best part was - this was
his JOB. He was going to document to his heart's content and get PAID
for it. It seemed amazing to him.

He felt calm for a moment as he clicked to upgrade . . . but suddenly,
a newfound sense of excitement overtook him. Now, he could hardly
wait for the NEXT SnagIt release!

TRAINING: Learn how to Document APIs and SDKs with a Workshop on a DVD

Documenting APIs isn't easy but learning how is a great way to enhance
your tech writing skills. Our new "Workshop-on-a-DVD", featuring well
known tech writing guru Manuel Gordon, can get you started now.

You will learn:
- What are SDKs? Why sell them? Why buy them?
- How to structure the documentation set for an SDK
- What programmers really want: A real-world case study
- How to outline a Developer's Guide
- How to automatically generate a Reference Manual using DGP tools
- Strategies for going forward and resources for learning more

Here is what one satisfied customer had to say:
"Your DVD course, Documenting APIs and SDKs, breaks a difficult
subject down into manageable chunks. Manny's presentation is easy to
absorb. The information on the Developer's Guide, particularly the
outline, gave me a solid starting point from which to build the
document. This course pays for itself with dividends."

Tri-XML is the XML interest group for the Research Triangle area,

to create, its application may be much more difficult. Our meetings
are designed to provide attendees with a free, technical education on
a variety of topics.

Our annual conference is scheduled for July 22-24, with a "Tools of
the Trade Show" (a vendor showcase) scheduled for July 22 followed by
two full days of peer presentations. Vendors will exhibit July 22-23.
Many of our speakers are returning for a second year, sharing their
world-class knowledge at this local event.

This conference is being held at the Sheraton Imperial in Research
Triangle Park. This is our second year in this facility, which hosted
our 130+ attendees last year.

***NOTE: Sign up before the next early registration discount expires!**
