Jang Graat will be presenting at TCUK17 on “Driving DITA off the map”.
DITA was designed for topic-based authoring, but DITA maps are basically Tables of Content, which belong to the book paradigm. Even when adding conditional content and keys, the underlying organization is still a hierarchy, whereas the real world is radically decentralized and chaotic. If we want to get out of the old, sequential, content paradigm, we need to rethink the way we connect the dots, or the topics, to each other and to the various groups of users. This presentation outlines a couple of options to design dynamic content delivery.
