This workshop will provide attendees with a hands-on walk-through of the essential DITA fundamentals, programming skills, and DITA Open Toolkit configurations required to assemble, style, and publish DITA XML source. After a brief overview of the DITA framework, course lectures and exercises will focus on the key pieces of a DITA publishing architecture, how to set it up, and how to optimize its publishing capabilities using customizations and plug-ins. You will learn to set up a publishing architecture using the DITA-OT pipeline and learn how to configure and debug the DITA-OT. You will learn also about key features of the new specification as they relate to publishing, including keyref, conref push, constraints, and subject scheme maps.

Is your management asking you to reduce documentation costs? Do you create information that few customers use? Do you have fewer people to create and maintain the volume of information you've created in the past? Are you pursuing content management and structured writing?

If your answers are "yes," the minimalism workshop meets your needs directly. Minimalist documents take time and effort to design, but once you have them in place, the savings are clear. Minimalist documents cost less to produce, are easier to maintain, and reduce requests for customer support. Customers are more likely to use a minimalist manual than any other kind.
