Book now

If you’re a tech-savvy publishing pro, you’re ready to unlock the power of an advanced text editor. With a free editor like VS Code, Atom or Sublime Text, you can:

  • automate menial tasks
  • search and replace complex patterns, not just literal text
  • create your own templates and assign shortcut keys to them
  • customise the entire editor to suit you and the way you work.

If you’re interested in developing these skills, this practical half-day workshop will get you going.

To register, you should have already completed an introductory digital-skills course, such as ‘Must-have tech skills for publishing pros’.


Cost: R1200 per person (including VAT)
Dates: 12 March 2019, from 9am to 1pm
Venue: The Bandwidth Barn, Woodstock Exchange, Woodstock

You must bring a laptop to do practical exercises, and have installed the free VS Code editor.
