Publishing Meets Technology - Tools of Change Conference

O'Reilly Media has teamed with SFU and the Centre for Digital Media to bring the first Mini-TOC to Canada!

The well-rounded program features speakers from the Vancouver area as well as speakers who have frequented our TOC in New York program.

100 lucky participants (50 in each workshop) will get to choose between our "Tech Workshop" and our "Secrets to Ebook Success" day-long workshops. The Tech workshop will include sessions on HTML5, and OpenSource tools for mobile publishing. The Secrets to Ebook Success will feature a 1/2 day ebook publishing primer (including best practices for ebooks), and a 1/2 day on Social Media, online marketing, and promotional strategies for ebooks and book apps.

Mini TOC Vancouver will be topped off by the first ever TOC Vancouver Ignite spotlighting 10 brave local souls willing to share their innovative, world-altering (or potentially world-altering) bookish/techy/artsy stories in a breath-takingly brisk format!

At Mini TOC, the presentations are just the jumping off point for discussions that involve everyone in attendance. We mix up the format so there will be some "thinky" idea-oriented sessions where presenters will lead discussions post-preso — and some "do-y" technical Q+As, where attendees can ask the experts on things like digital conversion, layout, and UX. It's BookCamp, meets unconference, meets TOC.
