Inside the DITA Open Toolkit

Simon Bate / Conferences1 Comment

The DITA Open Toolkit (OT) is the standard way to generate deliverables from DITA documents. To the casual user, the OT may seem intimidating, but in reality, it’s fairly easy to download, install, and run. 

Today (Wednesday, May 18) at the STC Summit in Sacramento, I’ll be giving a presentation I like to call “A Gentle Introduction to the DITA Open Toolkit.” I hope you can join me today, but if you can’t, we’ll be reprising the presentation in a Webcast on July 26.

If you’re interested in more information on easy ways to quickly extend the capabilities of the DITA Open Toolkit, read my whitepaper Hacking the DITA Open Tookit.

Hope to see you at the conference or online in July!

Involved in TechComm all my working life (since the time of vacuum tubes, core memory, punch cards, and bone implements). I've worked as a writer, a manager, and—for the past score of years—building software tools for TechComm. My motto is "Let the computer do the work." Outside of work, I balance the calories I create and consume in the kitchen with weight-training sessions at the gym. I also sing Tenor in various choirs and choruses.
