Are you interested or perhaps already using DITA but find the concept of keys to be mystifying? Or are you afraid that maybe you could get better reuse out of your content if you were able to optimize your key-based content?
In this presentation by IXIASOFT DITA Evangelist Keith Schengili-Roberts (also the host of the popular “DITAWriter” website) draws back the curtain and shows that keys can be understood by mere mortals. He will provide a straightforward guide to how keys work within DITA, and while the presentation will touch briefly on some of more complex things that can be done with keys, the focus of this presentation is on key basics.
In this special TC Dojo webinar, Keith will provide you with a better sense of what keys are, how they work, and what is possible with them.
