DITA: Start small, grow big, using open source tools
Patrick Baker, VP Development & Professional Services

You’re considering using DITA and would like to try it out without incurring significant upfront costs, but also keeping your options open longer-term. Where do you start? How will you approach the challenges of content creation, content management, and publishing your content?

There are in fact plenty of options. The good news is that XML and DITA are open standards. This has led to a healthy ecosystem with quality commercial and inter-operable open source tools, that do away with vendor lock-in and keep operating costs down.

We will discuss the three challenges, show an example of how end-to-end solutions can be built based upon Git and other open source tools. In fact, the result may be better than you’d expect.

Stilo are also one of the sponsors of this year’s conference, and will have a booth in the exhibition booth where you can get a demo of the Migrate XML cloud conversion service or AuthorBridge web-based XML editor for SMEs.
