Read the book!

XML Press has published MadCap Flare for Programmers: A guide to getting the most from Flare by Thomas Tregner and David Owens.

MadCap Flare for Programmers cover

I’m pretty excited about this. We cover the core subjects of this blog, often in greater detail. Some of the examples will look familiar but with more background information and deeper explanations. Other examples are completely new. You can read the list of chapters at the book’s page at XML Press.

If you want a narrative to help you begin scripting, automating, or programming in the context of MadCap Flare, MadCap Flare for Programmers is your starting point.
