Making sense of an authoring free-for-all
Patrick Baker, VP Development & Professional Services

Full DITA, Lightweight DITA, MarkDown, HTML5 … is it all getting a little confusing? Can these alternative authoring approaches form part of a unified structured content strategy, bringing together technical writing teams and SMEs with no knowledge of XML or DITA?

During the course of this presentation we will consider the relative merits of the alternative approaches, reflect upon some use case examples and show how collaboration between the different groups might be possible.

Tuesday, April 25 | 11.20 – 12.00 noon
Technology Test Kitchen | Low-cost, web-based DITA authoring for SMEs
Patrick Baker, VP Development & Professional Services

This session will provide participants with a hands-on introduction to AuthorBridge. AuthorBridge is a low-cost, web-based XML authoring tool developed for use by SMEs with no knowledge of DITA or its complexities. It has been developed in close co-operation with IBM to complement existing XML editing tools and provide a ‘Word-like’ authoring experience for non-ID professionals.

In addition to providing an attractive user interface, AuthorBridge provides a Guided + Fluid authoring experience for SMEs, free from the frustrating constraints generally associated with XML authoring tools.

Participants will be shown how to edit and review existing DITA topics, and to quickly create new ones. No knowledge of DITA or XML is required. All participants will receive a free 30-day trial of AuthorBridge, which they may continue to use following the conference.

What you’ll need to bring
All you need is your laptop. We will provide sample content. If you wish, you can provide us with your own Word or FrameMaker files, say 20-30 pages, ahead of the session (email to our Conversion Services Manager). We will use Migrate, our cloud XML conversion service, to convert it to DITA for use during the Test Kitchen. And you can take away the DITA generated for your own evaluation purposes. Alternatively, you can also bring along your own DITA content to work with.
