Extracting Microcontent from DITA Topics
Chris Despopoulos is an old hand at technical writing. He is currently Publications Manager at Turbonomic Inc. In this role, he works with a small team that uses Git to manage DITA source, and a number of home-grown processes that exploit DITA to manage docs as code, harvest content from source code (for the API docs), produce release notes, integrate with markdown and other formats, and rebrand the pubs product for a matrix of Agile teams and projects. Tired of waiting for the “experts” to do it, he designed and implemented 4D Pubs, a single-page app for online help… Static site, dynamic client.
