The Past, Present, and Future of Digital Publishing – ebookcraft 2019

Dave Cramer, Senior Digital Publishing Technology Specialist at Hachette Book Group:

EPUB has been around since 2007; EPUB 3 came out in 2011. We’re told we live in an age of digital disruption, but little has changed in ebooks since before the very first ebookcraft. What’s going on? What might the future of ebooks look like? Should we use EPUB 3.2? Will there ever be an EPUB 4? Are Web Publications real? This session is part history lesson, part unhinged rant, part futile attempt to predict the future.
