DITA-OT Day 2024

Welcome to the DITA-OT Day 2024!

We are happy to host the DITA-OT Day conference once again, the full-day event dedicated to the DITA Open Toolkit project, which is the reference DITA implementation and the core of almost all DITA-based publishing solutions!

After the success of the previous editions, this event is returning for its 8th iteration, taking place this time in Helsinki, Finland, on February 11, 2024. It's important to note that DITA-OT Day is an on-site event organized as the DITA Europe's pre-conference day, making it simple for those who want to attend both conferences back-to-back as both events are held at the Scandic Park Helsinki hotel.

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

Call For Proposals

Deadline: December 20, 2023

As we get ready for the 8th annual DITA-OT Day, we want to hear from you! Along with the usual updates on new features and plans, this year we want to focus on the people and teams using DITA-OT. We expect to have a mix of short lightning talks and longer, in-depth sessions; subjects range from technical talks about plugin development to high level overviews about deploying or managing DITA-OT within an organization. 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 a team of 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 !
