Semiconductor DITA Implementer’s Group (SDIG) is Back!

The SDIG folk are back after a summer hiatus, starting off with an open discussion of information development issues that people are facing in their DITA implementation. Basically we are looking for some good discussion as well as some ideas that you would like us to tackle for future presentation. Bob Beims will kick off the discussion by providing a recap of the issues that were discussed at last week’s Best Practices Conference in San Antonio which he attended.

I should also add that the next session on October 26th will be on converting legacy content to DITA, and we are also trying to line up a speaker to talk about what to expect in DITA 1.3.

It starts on Wednesday, September 21, 2011 10:00 AM-11:30 AM Central Time (US & Canada), which is 11:00AM-12:30PM in the Eastern Time Zone. The link for the LiveMeeting is: Further meeting/contact options below.
