Webcast: Building Ebooks for Web Browsers—Tools for Developers, Strategies for Publishers

Join Digital Book World on Tuesday, October 28 at 12:00pm ET / 9:00am PT / 5:00pm GMT for a webcast where you will learn how to develop and optimize ebooks for browser-based e-reading.

The ongoing Amazon-Hachette dispute is proving further that publishers’ ability to control how and where readers access their content is critical to their business. And as tablet sales begin to dwarf those of e-readers, there’s one thing all tablets have in common: a web browser.

This webcast will address best practices for ebook designers pursuing web-based production, offer tools for enriching and optimizing browser-native content and suggest tactics for leveraging the web to attract book buying audiences.

  • Publishers
  • Production and distribution managers
  • Ebook designers and digital production professionals
  • Software developers

What Attendees Will Learn:

    Browser-based eBooks are the way of the future. I don’t think my PubML™ (Publishing with HTML) eBook platform will replace Kindle anytime soon, but I like that publishers have an open-source, HTML5 format that looks better and delivers more functionality. And the PubML™ eBook publishing plugin for WordPress includes all the design guidance the average indie publisher needs to produce PubML™ and ePub eBooks. Better tools and better formats are more likely to come from small developers who are less concerned about the politics of big publishing. Those developers will naturally gravitate toward an open platform like the web browser—a platform that’s growing in capability constantly. See http://www.pubml.com
