New Challenge: Learning DITA. “I DITA know that!”

Tech writing has evolved into something quite different from what it was ten years ago when I first contemplated entering the field.

I perused many of the job listings and found that knowledge of structured authoring and DITA are top preferences among employers in the technical writing field. So that’s why I set about to write a series of brief articles explaining what I’ve learned about DITA and how much I need to know in order to land a tech writing job.
