Wednesday September 20, 2017:
STC-SF presents Scott Prentice with What’s new in ePub for Technical Communications?
LOCATION: We’re back at the usual place at 121 Spear!
ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
This presentation will bring you up to date on the recent changes in the EPUB world and discuss features that may be of interest to technical communicators.
The ePub specification continues to evolve. But this year the standards body responsible for maintaining that spec was changed from the IDPF to the W3C. The hope is that this merger will strengthen the ties between EPUB and the Web, helping to ensure the future use and compatibility of EPUBs. If you’re of the opinion that EPUBs are dead, perhaps Scott Prentice can change your mind!
ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Scott Prentice of Leximation, Inc., has been in the technical communications field since 1991. He focuses on custom online help and EPUB development, FrameMaker (plugin and structure application) development, as well as custom web application development.

Date and Time
Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month, except November and December.
6:00 PM: Networking
7:00 PM: Chapter Announcements and Topic Presentation
Please arrive before 7:00 PM while someone is present at the entrance to let you in. Due to security restrictions, the doors can only be opened by Salesforce employees. If someone is not present at the entrance, please be patient. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org to alert those inside the meeting or if you will be later than the presentation start time.
Meetings are held in the Salesforce office at 121 Spear St. in the Rincon Center complex bounded by Mission, Howard, Spear, and Steuart Streets.
The entrance to the chapter meetings is near Rincon food court entry doors facing the plaza (not the entry doors on Mission Street). It’s by the Eatsa and Big Fish, Little Fish. Look for the construction near the entrance. The lobby has glass windows and doors.
Use either the Howard Street Garage (located between Spear and Steuart) or the garage under the Rincon Center (located on Spear between Mission and Howard). The Rincon Center underground parking garage elevator will take you to the ground floor, on the same side of the building as the entrance to the meeting center.
NOTE that the Howard Street Garage’s rates are lower at night than during the day.
You can take either BART or MUNI and exit at the Embarcadero Station.
To get to the 123 Mission Street from there, turn right and walk down Spear Street, about half-way down the block. Turn right (west) on Mission.
