Wiki content has become increasingly popular within the DITA community, as evidenced by the recent announcement of the DITA2Wiki open source project. While most of these projects enable DITA-to-wiki conversions, community interest has been expressed for full-cycle wiki-DITA-wiki transformation capability. Mylyn WikiText hopes to close this loop with the addition of its support for DITA output. Mylyn WikiText can now create OASIS DITA as output from wiki markup.

Over on the Really Strategies blog I've posted about the fact that DITA, while it has lots of cool features that get a lot of us very excited, DITA can also be applied to the simplest applications. Because DITA, by dint of its unique features as a standard XML architecture, has the lowest possible cost of both initial implementation and long-term ownership, this makes DITA a compelling business choice simply because it saves money and time relative to almost any other alternative you might choose.
Presentation given by Kristen James Eberlein at DITA TECHCOMM 2008.
"New to DITA? This session will include a technical overview of DITA, as well as information about its history and why it is the XML authoring and content-management standard of choice for so many companies. Expect to leave the session with an understanding of both the key concepts of DITA and what it promises in regard to increased productivity and cost savings."
A DITA expert who uses FrameMaker 8 is needed to tutor a technical writer who is new to DITA and who is enrolled in an online DITA authoring course at the UCSC Extension.
The tutor must know how to get FM to work with the DITA OTK 18.104.22.168 and JRE 6. Must also be able to troubleshoot.
The tutor is needed for three upcoming Saturdays: Nov. 8, 15, and 22 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Tutoring will be done in a home office in the Blossom Valley neighborhood of San Jose.
