Do You Really Want To Make Me Cry? Advice to my former self

Have you ever customized your DITA implementation, and lived to regret it?

In this presentation, I will pull from my own experience and the experience of colleagues to describe what I wish I’d known years ago. If I could go back and start over, what would I do differently to save myself long term pain?

What can the audience expect to learn?

The audience will pick up tips to use in their own DITA implementations, to help make those customizations more stable and maintainable going into the future.

Meet the presenter

Robert D Anderson has worked on SGML and XML publishing tools for over 20 years, nearly all of that with the DITA XML format. He helps lead the DITA Open Toolkit, and has contributed to the project from its first day as an open source project. Robert also writes about DITA and is the co-editor of the DITA specification at OASIS, making him one of those rare developers who spends most days using the tools that he supports.
