Parallel 2 day 1 - Rebecca Officer

Rebecca’s team at Allied Telesis has spent the last few years converting their document set to DITA. It’s been a steep learning curve but overall very successful. They’re now happily creating, maintaining, and publishing thousands of pages of documentation with DITA.

At the 2014 Conference, Rebecca presented on the state of this project at that time. This year she’ll focus on how DITA has changed how the team collaborates. She’ll talk about it from an authoring point of view, especially the advantages of enforced consistency, and the challenges of getting familiar with a new way of writing. Then she’ll discuss it from a review and publication point of view, including how it’s made peer reviews much simpler and enabled the team to respond to customer requests much faster.
