The Anatomy of a Real DITA Documentation Project

The Anatomy of a Real DITA Documentation Project

Pre-Conference Workshop

DITA allows for a lot of flexibility, which translates to a huge number of choices. This is a good thing if you are an advanced DITA user but it may be daunting if you are just getting started or an intermediate user. It is always easier to look at a real example and start from there, rather than starting from scratch.

In this workshop, we will look over a real-world DITA project, see how it is organized, explore the DITA features it uses, how it is setup to keep track of versions, what publishing options are available, how to check documentation quality, and more.

On one hand, this can serve as a starting point (as an example you can follow when you start a new project), and on the other hand, you may also notice some interesting approaches that you can adopt in your own projects.

Another goal is to show you that the latest trends in the documentation world, specifically that “docs like code” ideas, are perfectly compatible with DITA.
