Companion slides for the presentation "HTML5 is the Future of Book Authorship" at Digital Book World 2014.
"Combining HTML5 and version control provides key advantages to authors and publishers looking to create and produce books in the brave, new digital world. HTML5-based authoring offers a streamlined production workflow for producing both print and digital outputs, facilitates “digital first” content development, and is a perfect fit for creating a WYSIWYG, Web-based writing experience. Version control enables richer, more streamlined collaboration, ensures a consistent history of changes, and leverages tools used for decades in the software industry. Come learn how O'Reilly is successfully combining these technologies in practice in its own publishing program."
