STC Berkeley: Topic-based Authoring class
Discussion started by Monica Hacopian , on 30 January 07:48 PM

The STC Berkeley chapter is sponsoring an all-day workshop in topic-based authoring on Saturday, Feb. 22. Come and learn valuable technical writing skills.

The class is called "Topic-based Authoring: Getting Your Feet Wet."
Topic-based authoring is a technique for writing content as discrete,stand-alone pieces ("topics") that can be combined and reused in different ways. This approach to creating documentation has been getting a lot of attention recently because it is an integral part of DITA (the Darwin Information Typing Architecture) and other XML-based solutions. However, topic-based authoring has actually been around for quite some time, and does not require DITA or XML.

The class will be taught by Linda Urban, who is an organizational performance consultant and an instructor in the Technical Communication program at UC Berkeley Extension.

You do NOT need to bring a computer to the class. SEATING IS LIMITED, so register early.

You can find details and register for the class on the STC Berkeley websit:
