CSH Demystified

A session at MadWorld 2014 Worldwide Learning Conference

Monday 14th April, 2014

2:35pm to 3:30pm (PST)

If you're a new Flare author, one of the most intimidating tasks in a project may be the CSH, or context-sensitive help, coding. The concepts may be new, the mechanics appear to draw you deep into code, and you'll have to work closely with engineering. Many authors view CSH work as simultaneously tedious and terrifying. In fact, the concepts are actually no more complex than the concepts behind a phone book. The design issues fall into a few clearly delineated options. Engineering does most of the work. And Flare helps you with what's left. After you've done CSH a few times, you may have decided that it's far from terrifying. But it is still tedious… In this session, we'll look at the structural and design concepts behind CSH, the job roles, and how Flare offers two options for actually doing the work. It will never be fun, but it will go faster, with fewer errors and problems.
