Earlier this week I enjoyed being in Rosemont, Illinois for my first in-person STC Summit conference. I presented on my team’s microcontent migration of an important company document. My slides are below. Download the PowerPoint file for all the animations.
Earlier this month, I presented at ConVEx 2022 Tempe with Rob Hanna. We spoke about how our company, Precision Content, built a microcontent solution for their complex content situation. If you attended ConVEx 2022 yourself, you can view the recording on the conference website. Our slides are below.
I had a fun time recording and presenting this talk alongside my Precision Content colleague and former University of Toronto professor Keith Schengili-Roberts for ConVEx 2021. Keith talked about the “the business of DITA,” touching on those industry sectors where DITA works best and where other structured authoring standards make more sense. I come in the second half to talk about “DITA and its Discontents,” or why teams abandon DITA and what sorts of opportunities for improvement lie on the DITA 2.0 horizon.
I had a great time at the virtual World IA Day Toronto 2021 event that took place last Saturday, where I was asked to present a lightning talk about finding an information architecture job in the current market. Since all of the lightning talks were prerecorded, I can easily share with you the video of my ~8 minute presentation. The local WIAD team even manually captioned my video, which is beyond awesome. I can’t wait for next year, but in the meantime you can check out my talk below.
