Mallard makes it easy to create dynamic, topic-oriented help documents, but even the simplest technologies have some learning curve, best practices, and advanced topics. To help developers and technical writers make the most of Mallard, I’m offering professional Mallard training services.
Mallard training starts with the basics: outlining a document, creating topics, and writing pages. You’ll explore Mallard’s unique linking and navigation system and learn how to create navigational structures that reflect what your readers are looking for. You’ll learn best practices on writing topics culled from years of in-the-trenches experience with Mallard and other documentation formats. All of this is done hands-on, creating actual documents from start to finish.
Training can be customized to your needs. You can also learn about topics such as using and developing Mallard extensions, integrating status tracking into your workflow, and working collaboratively with multiple contributors.
