Report from the oXygen User Meetup

The oXygen users meetup took place in Munich on November 17. It was a great success. George Bina and Radu Coravu informed and entertained the attentive user group the entire day. Talks were given in English, and we hardly ever heard anyone speak German during the breaks either.

The presentations were very technical. They were primarily aimed at developers who customize oXygen to the needs of technical writers or integrate the tool into content management systems. oXygen offers a variety of possibilities, which are only gateways to the infinite oXygen world. Several companies demonstrated their customized systems in which oXygen was barely recognizable. 

At the meeting, oXygen was described as a cookbook with a huge variety of ingredients. Almost every function can be adapted, even during runtime. The editor view can be optimized with CSS.  Enhancements in oXygen allow for condition-based formatting and let you create data entry forms that are both interactive and look pretty. Using scripts and build tools, you can create an individual and automatic information network.

oXygen offers more features than a Swiss army knife. That makes it even more difficult to explain this flexible tool. But several webinars and an excellent customer support make that possible. George and Radu answered every single question. They also did not mind that many guests did not want to leave when the conference was over.
