DITA-OT Day 2018

Welcome to the DITA-OT Day 2019!

This is a full day conference dedicated to the DITA Open Toolkit project, DITA-OT which is the reference DITA implementation and the core of almost all DITA-based publishing solutions. This year we host the 6th edition of DITA-OT Day after the huge success of DITA-OT Day 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.

This free event is brought to you by Oxygen XML Editor with the help of the following DITA-OT Day supporters:

Call For Proposals

Some of the sessions at DITA-OT day are reserved for the main DITA-OT developers but we also have a few available slots and we welcome community contributions. Please use this form to apply for a full session (25-40 minutes) or for a lightning talk (10 minutes).

We are looking for speakers on anything related to DITA-OT; sample topics might include:

  • If your team is new to DITA, do you have any recent stories about adopting DITA-OT? What went right, what went wrong?
  • Deploying DITA-OT within an organization: how do you manage roll out of DITA-OT to your team -- whether that's a team of five, or five hundred?
  • Managing DITA-OT: what skills are required to support your use of DITA-OT, and how do you find those skills?
  • Testing DITA-OT: do you have any local testing frameworks to share (for DITA-OT itself, for custom extensions, or both)?
  • Custom plugin development: do you have any fancy styles or output formats to show off and share?
  • If DITA-OT is just one part of a larger workflow, how do you ensure all the parts keep working together?
  • Do you have any stories about using DITA-OT and Lightweight DITA to publish content from both professional authors and developers?
  • If you've worked with companies who use DITA-OT differently, what do some get right, what do some get wrong?
  • Anything else we're missing? If it's related to DITA Open Toolkit, we'd like to hear your ideas!

Proposals will be accepted until July 30th.
