The Evolution of Transformation

Much has changed over the lifetime of DITA, especially regarding how content is transformed for end users. PDFs remain the staple of many technical publication departments and this presentation will look at the evolution of tools for transformation from XSLT through to more intuitive tools. It will also look at the demands for more flexible and personalised content delivery and the various platforms available.

What can the audience expect to learn?

The aim of the presentation is to educate and explain the many options available, looking at when you might choose what approach and at what is possible now that wasn’t possible even three years ago.
