XML London 2015. Interesting topics and the new oXygen

Last weekend, I attended the XML London Conference. For me, it was the first time.

Surprisingly, I saw many known faces. The XML world is smaller than I thought. And that's what makes this conference so pleasant. It covered exciting topics around XML, XSL, XPro, etc. Many of the presentations had references to documentation, such as DITA, DocBook, and semantic technologies like RDF. At the oXygen user meeting, which took place the day before, the new oXygen 17 was presented. George Bina and his colleagues are always willing to give advice to technical writers. They also always have some new exciting project in the pipeline. I already look forward to the next release.
