Kurzbeschreibung

The Start-to-Finish, Best-Practice Guide to Implementing and Using DITA

 

Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) is today’s most powerful toolbox for constructing information. By implementing DITA, organizations can gain more value from their technical documentation than ever before. Now, three DITA pioneers offer the first complete roadmap for successful DITA adoption, implementation, and usage.

 

Drawing on years of experience helping large organizations adopt DITA, the authors answer crucial questions the “official” DITA documents ignore, including: Where do you start? What should you know up front? What are the pitfalls in implementing DITA? How can you avoid those pitfalls?

 

The authors begin with topic-based writing, presenting proven best practices for developing effective topics and short descriptions. Next, they address content architecture, including how best to set up and implement DITA maps, linking strategies, metadata, conditional processing, and content reuse. Finally, they offer “in the trenches” solutions for ensuring quality implementations, including guidance on content conversion.

 

Coverage includes:

  • Knowing how and when to use each DITA element–and when not to
  • Writing “minimalist,” task-oriented information that quickly meets users’ needs
  • Creating effective task, concept, and reference topics for any product, technology, or service
  • Writing effective short descriptions that work well in all contexts
  • Structuring DITA maps to bind topics together and provide superior navigation
  • Using links to create information webs that improve retrievability and navigation
  • Gaining benefits from metadata without getting lost in complexity
  • Using conditional processing to eliminate redundancy and rework
  • Systematically promoting reuse to improve quality and reduce costs
  • Planning, resourcing, and executing effective content conversion
  • Improving quality by editing DITA content and XML markup¿

If you’re a writer, editor, information architect, manager, or consultant who evaluates, deploys, or uses DITA, this book will guide you all the way to success.

5.0 von 5 Sternen If it has to be DITA then this way 20. Februar 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
DITA (Darwin Information Typing Architecture) is a remnant from the XML-happy years around 2000 when the belief that many forms of data can be squeezed into formal DTD (Document Type Definitions) or Schema. DITA originated with IBM in their effort to document their own products. The specification tries to capture how technical information, aka manuals, should be structured. The main notion is that of a topic, which can be anything that forms a coherent, essentially self-contained part of technical documentation. Some of todays editing systems use DITA as data standard, but not every such system follows DITA. As with many early standards, DITA suffers from lack of flexibility, while at the same time overburdening end users with formal structure. But DITA is still around and continues to be used. It certainly remains a good starting point if you need to find some form of formal information structure for technical documentation.

'DITA best practices' is a very pragmatic book, which gets you up and running with DITA very quickly. Part 1 explains various notions of topics that make up the information content of a DITA conforming document. Part 2 looks at the architectural extras like linking between documents or metadata. Part 3 tries to be practical by paving your way towards applying DITA in your own work context. Parts 1 and 2 are very hands on and explain the formal XML-elements and attributes by way of easy example. In particular, the authors do a very good job at visually showing how the example documents get structured the DITA way without throwing formal XML-documents into the way of your understanding. If you need to get acquainted with DITA, these first two parts do a very good job at getting you there.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Get this book! 27. Oktober 2011
Von J. Chew - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Anyone who is implementing or using DITA should get this book. It has everything that you need to know to implement and use DITA.

This is now my go-to DITA book and has replaced the other DITA books and information (for example, material from DITA classes) that I already have.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Must Read -- Even at the Beach 20. April 2014
Von AlQibla AlAwla - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
We have six large publications and eight customers, all of whom want a customized version. This situation cries out for single sourcing, for which DITA is one solution. The online documentation for DITA is OK, but not comprehensive, not always comprehensible, and not necessarily addressed to technical writers. This publication is all three. Extremely well planned, very logical structure, and the authors have clearly spent many hours doing the job that I do. If you have a gut feeling that DITA can solve your single-sourcing problem, but are not sure exactly how, then this book is for you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent overview of DITA 5. Juni 2014
Von Priya Hays - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
DITA Best Practices gives a detailed overview of the technical aspects of DITA. Written for beginners and experts, the book discusses the use of topics, the reuse of content allowed by DITA, and how and why DITA should be adopted by companies. I use DITA at work, and this book gave me the theoretical insight into the practical use of DITA. It does a great job of clarifying difficult concepts such as information modeling.
