Resources provides a directory of educational materials and community-support tools for DITA.
In this webinar, you will learn about the software, integration and customization which enable you to effectively author, manage, localize, publish and share your DITA XML content. We will review how each tool fits into the content lifecycle and discuss options for an incremental DITA XML implementation using a basic toolset as the starting point.
Presenters: Joe Gelb, President and Yehudit Lindblom, Project Manager, Suite Solutions
