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.
Always Attend Live!
The first time we ran this session, it turned out that Liz was pretty sick when she gave it. Although her attendees said it didn’t affect the live session, the video recording revealed a need to re-record it when she felt better. It took nearly a year for us to reschedule and hold the webinar again.
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 be one of the first to find out what's coming up. Guarantee your spot and never miss another!
