The folks at Ixiasoft have invited me to give the keynote presentation at their first-ever DITA CMS User Conference which is happening later this week in Montreal, Canada.
The talk is called “DITA Today and Tomorrow” and will focus on the current state of the portion of the technical writing community that has embraced DITA XML, explore why it has been as successful as it has been, and some of the issues that I think are holding it back from even wider adoption. I will also bring out the crystal ball and prognosticate on the directions and ways that DITA is likely to be used for in the near future.
As with the keynote talk I gave at the San Diego DITA North America Conference I will be using Prezi to help me deliver what ought to be another very dynamic presentation. After the talk I will post a link to it from this site so that those who are unable to attend the conference can gain some benefit from my research into the current and possible future states of DITA.
