TT#20 – Adobe TCS, RR, AR, TDW-Live and S1000D A2Z

Thursday Thoughts (TT#20) – another recording of our weekly news round up from the world of tech data.

In the industry news this week:

We looked at Adobe and their announcement of dropping support for various operating systems. What does this mean for those on legacy operating systems?  Adobe just released an urgent fix to the Creative Cloud desktop application to solve a security flaw that was discovered.

The UK has ring-fenced almost £100m to develop its own satellite capability should the BREXIT negotiations fail to deliver a solution on the Galileo project.

Rolls-Royce look to be staying in London and sub-letting office space from a major UK newspaper.

The big news of the week is the launch of the Magic Leap Augmented Reality headset, a truly amazing and fascinating ‘leap’ forward in the technology of Augmented Reality headsets. Why did I get all excited about this technology? Watch now to find out what these headsets mean for AR in our sector and all the naysayers will need to rethink their defensive positions.

Mike Ingledew

A trained aircraft engineer (rotorcraft), I entered in to the field of technical information writing S1000D data modules on a major European military platform.

After a series of high profile project roles and the privilege of supporting clients worldwide, I ended my 'employed' career at a subsidiary of Boeing Aircraft after I decided to leave and focus on TDW full-time.

From my time supporting clients worldwide, I could see that there was a market need for an independent organisation that could be a trusted advisory source for those needing to implement successful technical information strategies.

I am passionate about the art of technical communications and the process, software and skills needed in our market.
