As FrameMaker continues to grow in the structure world and DITA/XML are jumping
into the picture more and more I'm wondering who from the list is going to the
Tri-XML conference this year? I'll be there and am doing a couple of sessions
including one on tools in which I show FrameMaker, XMetaL and other software
working with DITA compliant.
The great thing about the conference is that ALL VENDOR SESSIONS ARE DECLINED.
That means there are no presentations in which someone says "and buy our
software/hardware/product/service/solution/package/thing". Instead there is far
more technical content. Hopefully the organizers of this can do the same things
with other conferences.
There will be a vendor area where people can talk to whoever is selling stuff,
so if you attend, do go and talk to the vendors as well.
More info on the conference is at http://www.trixml.org/confindex.shtml
There's also stuff like ATOM, RSS, Blogging and more, but the XML/Frame and
DITA stuff will be represented.
If you are attending, can you drop me a note (offline) just so that I have an
idea of how many people from the Frame and DITA lists will be there? Maybe we
can have a group table at a lunch or something similar.
