Subject: any org[/beamer] experts in the ottawa area available for consulting?
Date: Sun, 9 Sep 2012 05:54:43 -0400 (EDT)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <alpine.DEB.2.02.1209090544290.19437@oneiric> (raw)

  here's the thing -- i can keep asking noob-level questions (i
probably still will), but i'm also *more* than happy to find someone
who knows this stuff intimately in the ottawa area with whom i can sit
down and hash out all the details i need to know to generate a ton of
courseware manuals in short order.

  the eventual goal is to transform the courses here:


from their current ODP/PDF format into org/beamer format (from which
we will, of course, churn out the final PDF).  and i've got a number
of new manuals under construction as well.

  here's the manual i'm working on right now:


under the "Courseware" tab, you can see the (CC-licensed) slides in
both ODP and PDF format, so you can get an idea of what i'm after.
and even though there are existing manuals, the ones i'm working on
will be changing so much that i'm thinking of it as effectively
rewriting from scratch, rather than trying to salvage what's there.

  if someone's available for a quick contract, let me know -- i'd like
to hash out all the issues i need to define a nice template for
manuals, factor out common content, create a full processing toolchain
for this ... you get the idea.  (if anyone has done all this and is
willing to share, that would be peachy; again, i have no problem
compensating someone for their assistance.)


p.s.  i asked this on the org list hoping for someone who also knows
beamer, of course.  if that doesn't work, i can ask on the beamer
list, looking for someone who also knows org. :-)
