Lightweight DITA with Markdown: Everyone contributes

Bluemix is IBM’s cloud platform for building, running, and managing applications. Targeted at developers, it is important to enable contributions to the content in an environment that is familiar to those developers. In this session, we discuss how we enabled the right authoring environment for the various authors of Bluemix content: DITA and Markdown. We focus on the Markdown implementation and how that enables us to open our documentation source and let everyone contribute to the docs. 

What can the audience expect to learn?

Attendees get a view into the implementation of a Markdown authoring environment, from infrastructure to authoring to publishing to contributing.
