Tinderbox Tutorial 2
Volume 2: Digging Deeper
Tinderbox is the perfect tool for managing your projects, from the planning stages to the post-production maintenance. The Tinderbox Tutorial Series teaches you to get the most out of Tinderbox, offering lots of examples drawn from many different fields.
Volume II reviews some of the basics in Volume I, and advances intermediate concepts like prototypes, linking, aliases, and agents—explaining both “how-to” and “why-to.”
If you already understand these concepts and are looking to take your work to the next level, many screencasts offer conceptual tips. Get ideas for ways to untangle links and creative uses for agents.
Plus, all the screencasts have been updated for Tinderbox 5.11!
