Events Webinar: DITA and Markdown

presented by Alex Jitianu

Wed, May 15, 2019 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM EEST

DITA is a great choice for writing technical documentation. Ideally, all contributors to a project should use it to provide content. But sometimes, subject matter experts (such as developers, or engineers) prefer to contribute content in another format. We will explore what possibilities arise when this other format is Markdown, a good match for structured authoring cases in which a minimal markup is sufficient.

Some of the topics covered by this webinar include:

  • Structured authoring
  • Content and markup
  • What are DITA's strengths
  • What are Markdown's strengths
  • Getting DITA format directly from the SMEs
  • Getting another format (Markdown, HTML) from the SMEs and integrating it into the DITA pipelines
  • Benefits of each solution
  • Challenges that arise when choosing one solution over another
