CCATP #460 Shelly Brisbin on Self-Publishing

We’re joined by Shelly Brisbin, author of the book iOS Access for All and host of The Parallel Podcast. As she’s written more than a dozen tech books, I asked her to come on the show to explain how she creates her books, what tools she uses, and how she migrated from using an agent and a big publishing house to doing self publishing. It’s a really fun episode because while you’d think creating a book is all about writing, Shelly gets into how she uses TextWrangler and writes her own Cascading Style Sheets to create her books.

You can find Shelly on Twitter @shelly and you can find her book at iosaccessbook.com/…, and The Parallels Podcast at parallelpodcast.com/….

CCATP #436 Allister Jenks and Julie Kuehl Talk WordPress

Allister Jenks hosts Julie Kuehl to talk about WordPress – the web software you can use to create a beautiful website, blog, or app. We discuss what it is, what it isn’t, the two key variations of WordPress, how simple and yet powerful and flexible it is, and how it is both a free, open source project, and also a basis for commercial services and products. We also talk at length about the WordPress community and how they helped Julie take a big step in her professional life.

You can sign up for a WordPress.com account to have it all done for you or download it for your own web host at WordPress.org.
