DITA Best Practices: A Roadmap for Writing, Editing, and Architecting in DITA free


Michelle Carey, Jenifer Schlotfeldt, Laura Bellamy pdf


&>The Start-to-Finish, Best-Practice Guide to Implementing and Using DITA

 

Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) is today’s most powerful toolbox for constructing information. By implementing DITA, organizations can gain more value from their technical documentation than ever before. Now, three DITA pioneers offer the first complete roadmap for successful DITA adoption, implementation, and usage.

 

Drawing on years of experience helping large organizations adopt DITA, the authors answer crucial questions the “official” DITA documents ignore, including: Where do you start? What should you know up front? What are the pitfalls in implementing DITA. How can you avoid those pitfalls?

 

The authors begin with topic-based writing, presenting proven best practices for developing effective topics and short descriptions. Next, they address content architecture, including how best to set up and implement DITA maps, linking strategies, metadata, conditional processing, and content reuse. Finally, they offer “in the trenches” solutions for ensuring quality implementations, including guidance on content conversion.

 

Coverage includes: 

Knowing how and when to use each DITA element--and when not to Writing “minimalist,” task-oriented information that quickly meets users’ needs Creating effective task, concept, and reference topics for any product, technology, or service Writing effective short descriptions that work well in all contexts Structuring DITA maps to bind topics together and provide superior navigation Using links to create information webs that improve retrievability and navigation Gaining benefits from metadata without getting lost in complexity Using conditional processing to eliminate redundancy and rework Systematically promoting reuse to improve quality and reduce costs Planning, resourcing, and executing effective content conversion Improving quality by editing DITA content and XML markup 

If you’re a writer, editor, information architect, manager, or consultant who evaluates, deploys, or uses DITA, this book will guide you all the way to success.

Anyone who is implementing or using DITA should get this book. It has everything that you need to know to implement and use DITA.

This is now my go-to DITA book and has replaced the other DITA books and information (for example, material from DITA classes) that I already have.

| 5 out of 5 Stars!


This book really is the definitive DITA roadmap and best practices based on many years of experience.

The book also includes:
- Chapter summaries
- Checklists and worksheets
- Common problems and solutions
- Figures and tables of correct and incorrect how tos

Although you can access the book immediately if you join Safari books, buy the printed book too because of its visual effectiveness. What do I mean? You'll find out!
