When you’re new to DITA everything seems hard. Even choosing a topic type. New writers lean away from the specialized toward the generic. Teams get inconsistent structures for similar information across deliverables. In this session, Liz Fraley will show you one strategy for identifying topics—in legacy content and for new content going forward—while unifying your authors so everyone works better together.
Liz Fraley, Single-Sourcing Solutions, is a serial entrepreneur. She’s founded two companies, sits on the boards of three non-profits, and is constantly coming up with new ways to share knowledge in the technical communications and content industries. She has worked in high-tech and government sectors, at companies of all different sizes (from startups to huge enterprises). She advocates approaches that directly improve organizational efficiency, productivity, and interoperability. If you ask her, she’ll say she’s happiest when those around her are successful.

Session held: 7 May 2018
It turns out Liz was pretty sick when she gave the webinar and, although her attendees said it didn’t affect the live session, the video recording revealed a need to re-record it when she’s feeling better.
If you’re interested in a subject, you always want to attend live. Sadly, this is one of the reasons why. Join our mailing list and never miss another.
