            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 don't believe so--there is no direct-purchase option separate from Amazon,
                          B&N, etc.

                              From: dita-users@yahoogroups.com [mailto:dita-users@yahoogroups.com] On Behalf Of Eliot Kimber
                              Sent: Thursday, April 19, 2012 4:37 AM
                              To: dita-users@yahoogroups.com
                              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
