How unconference day will be organized
In both morning and afternoon there will be two 1.5 hour long slots separated by coffee break. Lunch will be provided for attendees with a full-pass.
Program of respective sessions is completely in hands of session organizer. So any queries about particular session should be directed to the session organizer.
The first conference day takes place in the same venue as the main conference. However it is situated in the different building. It is best to use campus entry from the Italská street. You can see entrance and explore area using Google Streetview.
Just use entrance from Italská street and continue straight inside building until you reach atrium. Then use stairs to go one floor up and then look around for room RB212 (alternatively you can use elevators on the left side and go to the floor marked as 2 on the control panel).
oXygen Users Meetup
The oXygen users meetup is a great opportunity to meet oXygen developers as well as other oXygen users. The various sessions we host cover both how oXygen supports you for XML development and XML authoring, presented by our developers and we always try to also invite some of our users to share their experience.
Introduction to CSS for Paged Media
Tony Graham (Antenna House, Inc.)
This tutorial takes an eat-your-own-dog-food approach to showing how to use CSS for paged media. Using the HTML text of its own slides, the tutorial session will progressively reveal and explain the CSS styles that are used to format and paginate the slides. By the end of the session, the fairly undifferentiated mass of text will be formatted with running headers and footers, page numbers and page number crossreferences, bleeds, CMYK colours, footnotes, top- and bottom-floats, and other features that appear in paged media but not in a browser.
The session will also describe accessibility features of PDF and include a demonstration of a screen reader recognizing lists in the PDF and avoiding reading the headers and footers on each page.
Because of the comparatively short duration of the tutorial, there is only time to cover the CSS features specific to paged media. Attendees should already be familiar with CSS syntax and with using common properties such as border, padding, font-size, and so on.
XSL-FO, CSS, and Paged Output
Antenna House (Michael Miller and Tony Graham)
Producing formatted pages is still important to many of us. The intent of the Antenna House Unconference session will be to again share developments and experiences in producing paged media and to discuss topics of interest.
This 90-minute Unconference Day session will be a session of two halves: we’ll talk with you about the state of Antenna House software and you can talk with us and with your peers about challenges that you’ve faced or features that you’d like to see.
Once again, this is an opportunity to brainstorm with the assembled about a challenge you’re facing and are trying to solve.
If you have an interesting example to share, please get in touch with Michael Miller firstname.lastname@example.org.
We want this session to address what you are interested in. Give us your comments!
The following are possible topics. The exact makeup will depend on what you, the users, want to see or present:
- Examples of really challenging formatting requirements and how they were handled
- Show and tell – Your interesting formatting examples:
- The challenges
- The final output
- How would you do this with XSL-FO?/How would you do that with CSS?
- Is quality typography important?
- Some really interesting formatting requirement to duplicate historical documents
- The challenge
- Any ideas?
