Seattle-area DITA listening session on Jan 24, 2017

Are you interested in DITA want to provide feedback to the DITA community that might have an impact on its future? The OASIS DITA Adoption Technical Committee is extending an invitation to STC members and participants to attend a Seattle-area “DITA listening session” on Tuesday, January 24, 2017, 3:30-6:00 PM.

Although members of these Technical Committees interact with DITA prospects and DITA practitioners routinely at conferences and online, we suspect that our picture of how things are actually going for DITA companies is incomplete if we do not have venues for those DITA users and architects who have not had opportunity to attend conferences, local user groups (if they exist), or technical forums. These listening sessions are a form of outreach to DITA people where they live and work. The sessions are an opportunity for the Committee to obtain feedback from current, past and future DITA users. The Technical Committee recently released DITA Version 1.3 and is now assessing what sorts of features and/or capabilities might be important for DITA 2.0. See http://docs.oasis-open.org/dita/dita/v1.3/

Session Structures:

30 minute – meet n’ greet and then a 60 minute – attendee roundtable—how is DITA doing at your company?
30 minute – Q&A – OASIS TC members asking attendees
30 minute – Q&A – local attendees asking OASIS TC members
(Optional) Dinner and refreshments at a local watering hole (no host)

On site event but no registration required! Please RSVP by January 20th to:
