TCUK15 Speaker – Zsuzsa Nagy to present on “Beyond instructions: reference-heavy documentation”

Zsuzsa Nagy will be presenting on “Beyond instructions: reference-heavy documentation”.

Zsuzsa Nagy

This talk discusses some challenges of working in DITA with only few or no task topics.

  • Planning: Is it useful to use a short, task-heavy but generic document as the backbone of a document set if 90+% of the topics are reference topics?
  • Structure of the deliverable: You have 100+ reference topics at the same level. Do you show all of them in the table of content?
  • Workflow: We can reuse engineering content. It is in XML but not in DITA. How do we single-source and track version history for such content in our content base?
