Image result for alan houser stcDo you use DITA? Even if you don’t, you might one day. And even if you won’t, you can certainly benefit by learning the thinking that goes into structured authoring.

In this Chapter meeting, technical publishing consultant and past president and Fellow of the Society for Technical Communication Alan Houser will provide a whirlwind overview of DITA, the in-progress Lightweight DITA specification, and Markdown for technical communication. We will focus on why companies deploy DITA, barriers to deployment, and how the DITA Technical Committee is addressing those barriers. Whether you are currently working in DITA, or are interested in XML and structured authoring, you will find something of value in this session.

At the end of the evening, Nicky Bleiel and Cindy Currie, co-chairs of the STC Summit conference committee, will give a sneak preview of the upcoming Summit.
