Collaboration throughout the Organization: No Hacks Required with Stephani Clark and Jarod Sickler

Collaboration throughout the Organization: No Hacks Required

Join Stephani Clark and Jarod Sickler in this presentation as they discuss DITA collaboration between Technical Communicators and all other team members!

Presentation Session Description:

As Customer Success Managers at easyDITA, Stephani and Jarod work with a lot of technical communication teams and they’ve noticed a common thread: There’s a disconnect between technical communication teams and others in their organizations. This disconnect may be organizational or due to the different tools used by each team. Often, this gap is bridged by PDF. They’ve been working on a solution to make collaboration in DITA easy for all teams. Our new and improved collaboration system enables tech writers, engineers, and others to work in an environment reminiscent of Google Docs or Microsoft Word. In this interactive session, Stephani and Jarod plan to ensure you have some fun! Attendee’s of this presentation will create, review, and edit some content as a group. If you’d like to participate, please bring your computer and/or a sense of humor.
