Registration closes 20 August 2021
How you meet the person that comes to you for information makes all the difference in the world. You can make it smooth and easy, or you can make it confusing and overwhelming.
The benefits of topic authoring are abundant but the most significant impact could quite arguably be the focus on the reader/learner/user of the information. Because of the discipline of topic authoring, the focus is drastically simplified. Add to the authoring practice the drive to adopt a minimalistic approach and you end up with content that informs and instructs that is easy to understand and retain.
Topic authoring is a practice of writing that is often associated with the DITA architecture model but it doesn’t have to be exclusive to DITA. We can borrow the best practices to create minimalist well formed topics no matter what architecture you are in. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to take a practical approach to writing content using minimalism and topic based writing.
