This is going to be a great one. I've known the speaker for a while and even did a podcast with him. He's an long-time Arbortext customer who has done a lot of really interesting things over the years. However, one of the best things we can all learn from him is what it takes to deploy an Arbortext-style dynamic publishing system for a major company. At it's peak, his team of seven was managing the system for 700 writing staff. He was there in the beginning when they proposed the system to management and he's there today, 10 years later. It's going to be a great presentation!
