With all the intetest in our three publihsed books on DITA, Quality and Style, the editor at our publishing partner, Pearson decided to create an ebook bundle so that all three books could be combined together.
Three outstanding IBM Press eBooks help you create powerfully effective, usable, and higher-value technical communications…in all media, for all audiences, everywhere! The IBM Style Guide: Conventions for Writers and Editors distills IBM’s best wisdom for developing higher-quality content across all media, authors, delivery mechanisms, and geographic locations. In DITA Best Practices: A Roadmap for Writing, Editing, and Architecting in DITA, three pioneering implementers show how to use DITA to maximize the value of technical documentation and offer a complete roadmap for successful DITA adoption, implementation, and usage. Finally, Developing Quality Technical Information: A Handbook for Writers and Editors, Second Edition, presents before-and-after examples, illustrations, and checklists in this systematic, well-proven approach to creating great documentation.
