Ten downsides to DITA and how you avoid them

A session at TCUK 2015 | Technical Communication UK

  • Darren Mitcham

Thursday 1st October, 2015

1:30pm to 2:10pm (GMT)

Most of us hear over and over again all the positive aspects of a DITA-based publishing system: resuing content is good because it reduces overheads and in a global economy our localization costs will plummet. How many of you have braved implementing one and what is the reality of such an implementation? I am a senior technical communicator at an American electronics company, Altera. We have travelled down this this bumpy road during the last three years. I’ll let you feel my pain and more importantly share ways to make your transition smoother.
