In this successful workshop, authors and developers talked about their experiences creating and publishing CDF applications. Attendees learned about using its computation-powered interactivity and convenient deployment options for their own work.
Wolfram CDF Virtual Workshop 2012 Keynote with Conrad Wolfram The Computable Document Format (CDF) brings documents to life with the power of computation. This talk presents CDF examples and explains why Wolfram is uniquely positioned to deliver this technology.
Computable Document Format: Quick Start with Jon McLoone The Computable Document Format (CDF) puts easy-to-author interactivity at its core. This talk will show you the entire process for creating and sharing interactive content. It will include a simple walk-through of content formatting, style control, knowledge app authoring, and embedding live content into web pages. We will also showcase example uses from textbooks, journal articles, and consulting and management reports.
From Desktop to Web: Deploying Ideas with CDF with Vitaliy Kaurov CDF brings professional interactive electronic publishing from the realm of specialized companies to the hands of individuals. A perfect presentation and rich sharing options are crucial in developing ideas. The talk covers all CDF deployment options, from standalone applications to web delivery, and includes details on HTML embedding and usage of popular platforms and services such as WordPress, Amazon S3, and others. Deploy anything, from courseware and infographics to applications and scientific research and analytics reports.
Developing Real-World CDF Applications with Yu-Sung Chang Get ready for the world of extreme CDF-making. In this example-driven course, we will discuss real-world challenges of CDF development and will provide viable solutions. Topics such as customized controls, large data access, and asynchronous updates will be explained in detail. Practical examples and code snippets will be provided.
Publishing a CDF ebook: an Author's Perspective with Eric Schulz Eric Schulz will share tips from his experience creating an award-winning CDF ebook. This talk covers composing the book from 113 separate files, developing the 648 interactive figures in the book, and creating a quick navigation system. Calculus: Early Transcendentals by Briggs, Cochran, Gillett, and Schulz, published by Addison-Wesley/Pearson Education, is being used at hundreds of colleges and universities across the United States.
