Past Events

A DITA Primer (free event), 27th February

This event is part of a new ‘tools and technologies’ series of free, vendor-sponsored events. Vendors who present at these events commit to providing information that is useful to our community and to avoid making a direct sales pitch. In most cases,  they will use specific software in practical demonstrations.

Topic: A DITA Primer
When: 27th February, 2007; 6.30pm to 8.30pm
Where: SFU Harbour Centre, 515 West Hastings, Vancouver
Cost: Free.  If you plan to attend, please register so that we can accommodate everyone.

About this event
In 2007 it’s almost impossible for technical communcators to hide from the DITA world. It’s a little like that 90s children’s game called “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?” Everyone is talking about DITA, but have you actually seen DITA? You’ve been given lots of clues about what it looks like, how it works, but would you recognize it if you saw it? Would you know what to do with it if someone gave it to you to use?

In this free event, Bluestream Database Software Corp. offers a hands-on primer on content management using DITA, with practical examples using their XDocs tool.

About the presenters

Jim was a member of the W3C XQuery working group for 4 years and is an author of “XQuery from the Experts” from Addison Wesley. Jim has worked on documentation systems since 1982.
