Dispatches from the Digital Revolution
Inspired by Mozilla’s Summer of Code initiative, we at Appazoogle are pleased to announce something that we think is pretty neat: a chance to learn to code your own ebook.
Appazoogle has partnered with Boston’s #eprdctn meetup group (a group of ebook coding professionals which includes our former guest blogger Iris Febres) and students at Emerson College to put together a series of workshops for students to learn how to create an ebook– more specifically, an EPUB file. EPUBs are what you find when you open an electronic reader, such as an iPad or NookCOLOR, and read your favorite book.
The event will take place on Saturday, September 15, from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m., at Emerson College in downtown Boston, and will comprise a series of hour-long workshops that cover the basics of HTML and CSS, the building blocks of an ebook. Each workshop will be led by professionals in the industry familiar with web development and ebook development.
So: in the Boston area? Excited about coding? This just might be the Appazoogle event for you. If you would like to participate in this event, sign up through our EventBrite site. Note that spaces are limited, so sign up now!
