Training Class

The DITA: Getting Started workshop delivers a comprehensive introduction to the DITA 1.2 standard, providing participants with an in-depth look at the end-to-end DITA information development environment.

This training begins with the conceptual and practical challenges of moving from a book-based to topic-based architecture, then quickly progresses into hands-on exercises in an XML authoring environment. In the exercises, participants are guided through the process of making a DITA content plan, creating DITA source topics, assembling the topics into DITA maps, applying metadata, and publishing through the DITA-Open Toolkit. 

The workshop is a mix of conceptual and hands-on: students are asked to understand the framework and best practices, then perform exercises to practically apply and reinforce the learnings.
