      Congratulations! That's a group that certainly needs
      all the support it can get, and it sounds like you've
      provided a major resource! I look forward to reading
      Volume 1 soon, and Volume 2 as soon as it comes out.

      Thanks too for all your helpful comments on this list.
      I don't know how you find enough hours in the day... ;-)

              Subject: [dita-users] DITA For Practitioners Vol. 1 Available for Preorder

               

               

              I am pleased to announce that the print edition of my book, DITA For
              Practitioners, Volume 1, Architecture and Technology, published by XML
              Press, is available for preorder from Amazon (and other online bookstores as
              it makes its way through their various processes).

              The book's main site is:
              http://xmlpress.net/publications/dita/practitioners-1/

              DITA for Practitioners is a conceptual and how-to resource for people who
              need to put DITA into production, rather than for authors using DITA to
              write documents (although authors who want a deeper understanding of DITA as
              a technology will, I think, find the book quite useful).

              Volume 1 focuses on the DITA architecture--what are all the pieces that make
              up the DITA standard?--and on the technology you use to create and process
              DITA content: authoring tools, the DITA Open Toolkit, and component
              management systems.

              We expect to have copies available next week at the DITA North America
              conference.

              I'm still getting the companion Web site together and finalizing the EPUB
              and Kindle production details, but those should be available very soon.

              Volume 2 will focus on DITA vocabulary design and implementation: document
              type configuration and specialization as well as the general art and science
              of XML content model analysis and design as it applies to the development of
              DITA-based systems. Volume 2 will include the specialization tutorials
              available at http://www.xiruss.org/tutorials/dita-specialization/. Those
              tutorials will continue to be available for free online and are now produced
              from the same DITA source as the book.

              Cheers,

              Eliot

                      I am pleased to announce that the print edition of my book, DITA For
                      Practitioners, Volume 1, Architecture and Technology, published by XML

                      it makes its way through their various processes).

                      http://xmlpress.net/publications/dita/practitioners-1/

                      DITA for Practitioners is a conceptual and how-to resource for people who
                      need to put DITA into production, rather than for authors using DITA to
                      write documents (although authors who want a deeper understanding of DITA as
                      a technology will, I think, find the book quite useful).

                      Volume 1 focuses on the DITA architecture--what are all the pieces that make
                      up the DITA standard?--and on the technology you use to create and process
                      DITA content: authoring tools, the DITA Open Toolkit, and component
                      management systems.

                      We expect to have copies available next week at the DITA North America
                      conference.

                      I'm still getting the companion Web site together and finalizing the EPUB
                      and Kindle production details, but those should be available very soon.

                      Volume 2 will focus on DITA vocabulary design and implementation: document
                      type configuration and specialization as well as the general art and science
                      of XML content model analysis and design as it applies to the development of
                      DITA-based systems. Volume 2 will include the specialization tutorials
                      available at http://www.xiruss.org/tutorials/dita-specialization/. Those
                      tutorials will continue to be available for free online and are now produced
                      from the same DITA source as the book.

                      Cheers,

                      Eliot

                                Subject: [dita-users] DITA For Practitioners Vol. 1 Available for Preorder

                                 

                                 

                                I am pleased to announce that the print edition of my book, DITA For
                                Practitioners, Volume 1, Architecture and Technology, published by XML
                                Press, is available for preorder from Amazon (and other online bookstores as
                                it makes its way through their various processes).

                                The book's main site is:
                                http://xmlpress.net/publications/dita/practitioners-1/

                                DITA for Practitioners is a conceptual and how-to resource for people who
                                need to put DITA into production, rather than for authors using DITA to
                                write documents (although authors who want a deeper understanding of DITA as
                                a technology will, I think, find the book quite useful).

                                Volume 1 focuses on the DITA architecture--what are all the pieces that make
                                up the DITA standard?--and on the technology you use to create and process
                                DITA content: authoring tools, the DITA Open Toolkit, and component
                                management systems.

                                We expect to have copies available next week at the DITA North America
                                conference.

                                I'm still getting the companion Web site together and finalizing the EPUB
                                and Kindle production details, but those should be available very soon.

                                Volume 2 will focus on DITA vocabulary design and implementation: document
                                type configuration and specialization as well as the general art and science
                                of XML content model analysis and design as it applies to the development of
                                DITA-based systems. Volume 2 will include the specialization tutorials
                                available at http://www.xiruss.org/tutorials/dita-specialization/. Those
                                tutorials will continue to be available for free online and are now produced
                                from the same DITA source as the book.

                                Cheers,
