I attended the STC conference a few weeks back, and that was the first place I had ever heard of DITA. A lot of companies at the conference were using it, and I was very intrigued to find this much information exists. That is sort of the problem...I am trying to figure out where to start. I want to be able to both explain it and use it. Any tips? I am trying to implement it here at work as a capability.
Thanks to the University of Toronto Knowledge Media Design Institute for hosting the meeting - here's the brief intro to DITA presentation, with a final slide that previews some possible subjects for future meetings.
