Muse (HTML authoring) demo/Q&A Friday
In this Ask a CS Pro session, Muse PM Dani Beaumont will show you how Muse allows you to include arbitrary HTML code in your project. We’ll take a look at how you can easily add elements like Google Maps, YouTube videos, Facebook ‘Like’ buttons and such. We’ll even get a little more edgy and look at embedding Flash slideshows and blogs from platforms like Tumblr.
Friday, noon Pacific time (converter).
