Developing a Help system and application that communicates well together
is often a challenge, especially when you work with different coding
teams that use their own methods for implementing Help. In this
seminar, we'll discuss technical requirements for various Help projects,
including WinHelp 4 and HTML Help. We'll also discuss how new web-based
Help system technologies can affect your current and future projects.
The information you'll gain from this seminar will make your development
cycles more managable and predictable.

Key Topics:
Scoping project requirements
Analyzing the requirements for context sensitive Help
Efficient Help system planning for the entire project team
Adding Help support in an application
Creating builds and installations
Understanding the impact of new HTML-based systems
Mixing different versions of Windows and web Help systems

This seminar provides interactive lab exercises. Computers
and break refreshments will be provided.

Fee: $500 before June 15 $550 after
