Are you interested in DITA? Do you want to provide feedback to the DITA community that might have an impact on its future? The OASIS DITA Adoption Technical Committee (TC) is extending an invitation to PDX DITA and STC members and participants, as well as any other DITA users in the Portland OR area, to attend a Portland-area “DITA listening session” on Wednesday, March 8, 2017, from 6:00-8:00 PM.

Where: Puppet Labs 308 SW 2nd Avenue, Fifth Floor, Portland, OR 97204

Although members of the DITA and the DITA Adoption Technical Committees interact with DITA prospects and DITA practitioners routinely at conferences and online, we suspect that our picture of how things are actually going for DITA companies is incomplete if we do not have venues for those DITA users and architects who have not had opportunity to attend conferences, local user groups (if they exist), or technical forums. These listening sessions are a form of outreach to DITA people where they live and work. The sessions are an opportunity for the Committee to obtain feedback from current, past and future DITA users. The Technical Committee released DITA Version 1.3 in 2015 and is now assessing what sorts of features and/or capabilities might be important for DITA 2.0.
