Building Your First Mobile Documentation App

Build a mobile app with no coding!Saturday, October 17, 2015

We are lucky to have Neil Perlin offering, for a second time, his ground-breaking workshop on building a mobile app. 

By the end of this one-day workshop, you will have created a multi-page app that can:

  • Send an email message (pre-addressed or not)
  • Open a URL
  • Open a web-based document and display it in a viewer
  • Open a database and search within that database
Using Viziapps, you will create an interactive, database help system on your smartphone or tablet.

Computer requirements

Please bring a laptop with you for this workshop; you will need to install some software on the laptop.

Make sure that your laptop allows you to install software. Many corporate IT departments block the software installation features on their employees’ computers.

A little about Neil

Neil Perlin, owner and principal consultant of Hyper/Word Services, entered technical writing in 1979, began creating online documentation in 1985, and is now an internationally recognized expert in online help and documentation design and development.

Neil is especially well known to technical communicators in the New England region, because he lives in the area, and therefore we have had the benefit of his cutting-edge programs, workshops, and webinars. 

In addition to his many professional accomplishments, Neil lives a parallel life as a barbeque aficionado.
