General Discussion

Suggestion: Learn how to make eBooks at Treehouse?

Hey guys! I was wondering if Treehouse could introduce Digital Publishing as a track. If you work in book publishing (like I consider doing) you can't escape eBooks and people with the corresponding skills are desperately needed in the industry. Since it's basically HTML, CSS and XML I thought it would fit in quite nicely here at Treehouse :)

Keep up the great work!

Funny you should mention Rory Gilmore I saw someone tweet about this the other day : http://www.gitbook.io/ One good way without needing PDF reader software, or Flash :-)

Rory, do you have any good links or online references related to this topic? I don't know anything about ebooks but I know someone who is planning to create an ebook and I would like to learn about it.

Hi James. Sorry for the late reply, but I didn't had an answer for you until now. The news-website Digital Book World is offering online-courses on topics such as ePub, eBook Apps and publishing workflows in general. However, it's not a subscription model like Treehouse, you have to pay (quite a lot) for every course. They have a short demo though.
