Our September meeting will feature Mark Poulalion, Publishing Systems Integrator of Bonnier Corporation.

See how the publisher of Popular Science, Transworld Snowboarding, Parenting and 45 other magazines has been producing iPad versions over the past 18 months. With a total of 488,899 downloads since the iPad was first shipped in April 2010.

You will see how they take their print ready InDesign files used in print and prepare for an interactive experience on the iPad using their two preparatory systems: MagPlus and the Bonnier Reader.
