Summer is here and what better time to learn more about DITA XML? 😉 Okay, maybe that’s not for everyone, but this series of webinars hosted by easyDITA look to be an interesting way to while away a lunchtime.

Unfortunately I came into this information a bit late (busy with work!), but there are a number of DITA-related webinars planned for the rest of the July through to September. Here’s a listing of the available webinars (including already-archived versions)

DITA and Content Strategy May 29, 2013 [Register to view archived recording]
Sarah O’Keefe, Scriptorium
Do you need a content strategy with DITA? Is DITA itself a strategy? What kind of train wreck can you expect if you move forward without a strategy? Can you have content strategy without a content management system? Join us as we explore these and other questions.

DITA and Minimalism June 12, 2013 [Register to view archived recording]
JoAnn Hackos, Center for Information Development Management
DITA and Minimalism go hand in hand. You can simplify your content and make it more user-friendly as you learn to write in topics. How can you apply minimalism principles to your DITA Information Model and content as you begin your implementation?

DITA for Learning and Training, June 26, 2013
Amber Swope, DITA Strategies
How can DITA help you deliver Learning and Training content to multiple audiences in multiple formats – including interactive presentation?

DITA and Mobile Delivery – July 17, 2013
Ann Rockley, The Rockley Group
Mobile has forever changed the way people access and interact with your content. How can DITA help your mobile strategy succeed?

Localization in DITA – August 7, 2013
Andrzej Zydron, XTM International
DITA can help you reduce localization costs by up to 80%. Plus, we’ll show you how localizing DITA components instead of entire publications can radically shorten cycle time and help you achieve simultaneous worldwide launch.

Converting legacy content to DITA – August 28, 2013
Les Burnham, CEO, Stilo International
Conversion to DITA doesn’t have to be complex, slow, and expensive. How can a just-in-time / on-demand approach make conversion quick and affordable?

Dynamic Publishing in DITA – September 11, 2013
Joe Gelb, Suite Solutions
Many think that DITA publishing can’t match the quality of desktop publishing when it comes to complex formatting. We’ll dispel this myth with real world examples and demonstrations showing how DITA can automate high-quality multilingual publishing to PDF, help, web and mobile at the push of a button.
