The folks at Comtech Services Inc. are doing a series of three free webinar sessions on DITA. These ones seem to be aimed primarily at those who are either just starting out in DITA, or are looking to compare notes and get a better understanding as to what industry best practices are when it comes to putting DITA XML into production. They are all hosted by industry expert JoAnn Hackos, who is also the founder of the Center for Information-Development Management, which organizes the popular Content Management Strategies/DITA North America conferences (with the next conference scheduled not long after the conclusion of these free webinars).
