DITA Worst Practices: The Sequel

Time: 3:15-4:15 pm

Meet the Presenter

Keith is IXISOFT’s Senior DITA Content Strategist. Keith is also an award-winning lecturer on Information Architecture at the University of Toronto’s School for Continuing Education. He is the Chair of the OASIS DITA Adoption Committee, and regularly presents at conferences, works with customers. Keith continuously researches how DITA is being used and then shares those results with the community. Keith’s popular industry blog DITAWriter.com has become a focal point on DITA resources.

Presentation Abstract

This presentation is designed as an instructive and funny lesson on what not to do when implementing DITA within a documentation team. The original DITA Worst Practices was very popular at Lavacon 2017, and has proven to resonate with many DITA technical writers and managers who either saw it at Lavacon or in subsequent webinars. Since then, Keith has found new stories that will both entertain and horrify (from a DITA perspective) listeners. ‘I hope that some of these stories will strike a chord with people who may find themselves in similar situations, and give them enough information to change course before they become a “worst practice” story themselves.’

IXIASOFT is proud to be a platinum sponsor at LavaCon 2019.
