Chapter Meetings

Next STC-SF chapter meeting: Wednesday 15, April 2015

Mysti Berry presents:
Ten Years of DITA: Are We There Yet?

The Salesforce documentation team has been writing content for end users, administrators, and developers in DITA for over ten years. We’ve only begun to realize what problems DITA solves best. Join Mysti for a case study of what we did right, what we think we did wrong, and how we’re fixing it. If DITA is in the house or on the horizon, our lessons learned are helpful to you if your company plans to localize content, grow rapidly, have highly distributed authoring, or if you are planning to adapt existing content to new mobile form factors. We’ll save plenty of time at the end to discuss solutions for the problems we’ve encountered with DITA.

About the presenter:

Mysti Berry is a Principal Technical Writer with over 25 years experience in companies that build enterprise software. She has content strategy and information architecture experience, and a passion for solving hard problems

Parking

Use either the Howard Street Garage (located between Spear and Steuart) or the garage under the Rincon Center (located on Spear between Mission and Howard). The Rincon Center underground parking garage elevator will take you to the ground floor, on the same side of the building as the entrance to the meeting center.

NOTE that the Howard Street Garage’s rates are lower at night than during the day.


Public Transportation

You can take either BART or MUNI and exit at the Embarcadero Station. Turn right and walk down Spear Street, about half-way down the block. Cross the street and enter the plaza about half-way down Spear Street (on the east side of Spear Street). Walk up the steps, and when you see the Dolphin fountain, look left, you’ll see the entrance.

Prices are the same for online reservations and walk-in purchases.

Member price is for STC members. You do not need to be a San Francisco Chapter member to qualify.
