Old Hand Summary: 4pm Thursday April 18 ACS Rm 123 - Web Setup Experiences
At the next meeting of the Front Range UNIX Users Group we will have
two speakers talk about web site setup.
will talk about his experience with WebMaker,
a program that converts FrameMaker
documents into HTML. It's cheap (99$), it converts everything, and it does
a better job than similar programs, including the one built into FrameMaker.
Using it, you can make high quality printed documents, with tables of contents,
indexes, figures, cross-references, etc., and have the same information
appear on the World Wide Web. FrameMaker users can create decent Web pages
without having to learn HTML.
He'll discuss how the program works, how it evolved, some known bugs,
and the ramifications of using it as a documentation standard. He will
supply printed copies of the NCAR network
authored using the system. He will also show how the equivalent Web pages
produced by WebMaker look. Pete Siemsen is a Network Engineer at NCAR.
Bryan Buus will
describe his experiences in getting together a successful web server running
Netscape's Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). He'll run down the key application
process and the installation process for both the Netscape
Commerce server and the
Apache SSL server.
Bryan Buus is the Manager of Web Services at XOR
Network Engineering in Boulder Colorado, where he manages and develops
their Web hosting product, aXXess(tm).
He regularly instructs classes about managing Web services for companies
such as CERFnet and Hewlett Packard's PSO division. Before coming to XOR,
Bryan kickstarted O'Reilly & Associate's online efforts in 1992. He
received his Master's degree from Boston University in Computer Science,
specializing in Internet information services. He is a coauthor of Managing
Internet Information Services, published by O'Reilly
