This webinar focuses on a single source solution to a real-world business challenge and is free to SIG members.

Business Scenario

CompanyD is a software development company that maintains a substantial API/SDK library. Products require constant API updates and their goal is to automatically update the documentation with the API updates. CompanyD also wants to use open-source development tools, where possible.Inputs:XML, custom structureOutputs: PDF, HTML, Text

Business Solution

Mark Giffin will present a single-sourcing project for a large API reference worksystem that has been in place for six years and is still growing. The source files are XML with a custom structure. No commercial tools are required except a commercial PDF generator software that may be replaced with free software. The documentation system is constructed so changes in the API automatically propagate into the documentation outputs of PDF, HTML, and text.

Mark Giffin is a long-time technical writer and programmer. His company, Mark Giffin Consulting, Inc., specializes in XML-based documentation systems (including DITA systems) and API/SDK documentation.
