DITA Open Toolkit Workshop - Making it Work for You

April 21-23, 2009

Offered jointly by Suite Solutions in conjunction with Intentional Design.

Conducted by Aliza Merzel, an experienced consultant who’s slogged through the trenches on real projects, this three-day workshop is intensive, technical, and useful with plenty of hands-on exercises. It is geared for those who are familiar with DITA and need to go the next step to publish their DITA content into production-ready high-quality PDF or online Help using their own look and feel and meeting their own publishing and localization requirements.

The Workshop will be appropriate for all levels of familiarity, from beginner to advanced user. Please note the technical prerequisite:
- participants should already be familiar with DITA and XML.

Bring your own laptop: As part of the training, we will help you to install and configure the DITA Open Toolkit and the FO plug-in, as well as free software that will help you achieve your customization goals.

Small classes, maximum interaction: The class will be kept small to allow plenty of interaction with the instructor, so register today to reserve your place!
