Presentation abstract

DITA is designed to help writers produce consistent, easy-to-find, easy-to-consume content that is directly tailored to the user’s needs. This talk clarifies the best practices that are baked into the DITA standard: modularity, topic typing, mechanisms for reuse and conditions, single source, specialization…and how these principles impact the way writers design and create content. Technical writers and managers who are new to structured content and DITA will learn how it works in practice. The talk is in a show-and-tell format, and examples include migration samples to DITA “live.”

What can attendees expect to learn?

This presentation highlights the fundamental best practices that are baked into the DITA standard: topic-based modularized content, hazard formatting, topic types, instructions structures, linking them back to ISO standards and other best practices.

The audience should come out of the presentation able to articulate the benefits when designing modular structured standard content and break down those benefits into singular best practices or methods.
