We came. We tweeted. We learned ALL THE THINGS.
On March 10 and 11, we presented ebookcraft and our inaugural ebookcraft workshops with eBOUND Canada, and we’re happy to say it was a 50/50 event. It was two days of hands-on exercises, presentations, lively discussions, and muppets.
#ebookcraft is the only publishing-related conference I’ve been to that leaves me energised and not drained and pessimistic.— Baldur Bjarnason (@fakebaldur) March 11, 2015
You can find a great roundup of #eprdctn resources and links that were shared during ebookcraft here, compiled by amazing BNC Intern Madison Senner.
At Tech Forum on March 12, we heard about the “end of reading” (which actually turned out to be just the “beginning of reading”) from Kevin Ashton, discovered how sound can change a book’s life, and basically came together to reinvigorate the Canadian book industry with research, new strategies, and technology.
Love that we’re learning about podcasts at a publishing event. We are creative content producers! All mediums are avail. to us #techforum— Livres Canada Books (@livresCAbooks) March 12, 2015
There were also, of course, the cookies.
If you missed something, or you forgot things in a sugar haze, you can relive the whole adventure through the power of links:

In the meantime, don’t forget to give us your feedback so we can make sure ebookcraft and Tech Forum are even better next year.
Thanks to all the presenters, organizers, sponsors, MaRS Discovery District staff, and all who attended! See you next March.
