Mission Training presents a Hands-on, Help development seminar:

"Conversations with an Application: Implementing and Managing Help
System Development"

An advanced-level seminar and computer lab for project managers, Help
developers, and application developers.

Presenter: Nancy Hickman,
author of Building Windows 95 Help, M&T (IDG) Books

Date: February 25, 1999
9:00 to 5:00

Location: Arlington, TX

Developing a Help system and application that fits well together can be
a challenge.
Often, at the very end of the development cycle, a Help developer
discovers the application and Help do not communicate with each other
completely, and these problems seriously impact the developer's original

design and intention, not to mention schedule plans. Additional problems

can arise from coping with different coding teams and environments, and
you discover the way that your development team has always coded is not
the way another team works.

In this seminar, we'll discuss technical requirements for various Help
projects, including WinHelp 4 and HTML Help. We'll also discuss how new
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 and your designs insightful.

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 February 1, $550 after

Attendees must register before the seminar to ensure that they have
equipment and materials. For more information or to
register call 913-491-9671 or email the instructor at nhickman -at- gvi -dot- net -dot-
