Our community projects
We give away information like candy
Our committment to fostering strong community relationships differentiates us from our competitors. We donate 10% of our time to community educational efforts. This is a list of projects that we have founded, created, and organized for the technical communications and Arbortext communities:
The Single Sourcing blog is focused on information about Arbortext, the community, and the best practices for successful implementation of dynamic information delivery projects.
The TC Dojo is a series of webinars where the topics are chosen by the community and driven by community needs. In the TC Dojo-Arbortext Edition, we cover topics of interest to Arbortext users.

Single-Sourcing at dita.xml.org
We publish the Single-Sourcing Blog on the dita.xml.org Postings here are all DITA related.
We founded, created, and organized TC Camp, the first un-conference for the techcomm community. In 2016, we spun off TC Camp as an independent non-profit organization. We remain a strong supporter of the event.
Lots of other resources are available, too.
Arbortext has always had a very active community. Users and developers support each other, answer each other's questions, and present at conferences. We talk about everything: We talk about Arbortext, but we talk about all the related technologies that come into play as well. The community is more than just Arbortext customers. One of the strengths of the community -- and of the Arbortext product line -- is that PTC's Engineering team also partcipates in the community. You'll see them answering questions at all times of the day and night, right alongside us.
Arbortext @ PTC Communities
This is your best place for informal questions for PTC. Monitored by PTC R&D and Product Management as well as new and old customers. This group holds the archives for Adepters, the long-running mailing list that has been around since 1996. There's a lot of tribal knowledge buried here. (Migrated from PTC/User archives in April 2015, after being migrated from Arbortext in 2006.)
