TCUK19 Speaker Alexandru Jitianu – DITA and Markdown

Alexandru Jitianu will be giving a presentation at TCUK19 entitled “DITA and Markdown”.

DITA is a great choice for writing technical documentation. Ideally, all contributors to a project should use it to provide content. But sometimes, subject matter experts (like developers, engineers) will prefer to give content in another format. We will explore what possibilities arise when this other format is Markdown, a good match for structured authoring cases in which a minimal markup is enough.


We will explore various solutions like:


– getting DITA format directly from the developers
– getting Markdown format from the developers and integrate it into the DITA pipelines
