A year in London. I am not just missing my sock

May I present Parsons Green in London? I think it's a perfect name for a London parson branch. That branch is not planned yet, but a bit of parson is actually in London at the moment. Me. more ...

iiRDS – How a Novice Sees the Information Delivery Standard

Lately, the newly developed tekom standard iiRDS has gained quite some attention. The next exciting step will be the release of version 1.0, which will be released soon.

And off they are

If I am lucky, I get a hold of them in the chat program. Sometimes, I forget what they look like. My colleagues are constantly on the move these days: Frankfurt, Bologna, Copenhagen, Budapest, Berlin.

Our visualization experts Katrin Mehl and Elisabeth Fischer just gave a workshop in Frankfurt on the subject “Visualization in technical writing. Say it with pictures.” The room in Frankfurt was full and all tickets were booked long before. The workshop was a huge success.

In three days from now, on April 14, Sabine Stoye and Mark Schubert board the high-speed train to Berlin to present a workshop about knowledge modeling at the tekom spring conference. Twice, actually.

Next stop: Bologna. At the Com Tecnica 2016, Frank Ralf gives a tutorial on “Relax, Just Do It – DITA Customization with RELAX NG”. The program.

Shortly after his return, Frank will be off again, this time to Copenhagen. He and Mark Schubert attend the Nordic Techkomm and give two presentations: Dynamic Content Delivery – Methods and Tools (Frank Ralf) and “Knowledge Modeling” (Mark Schubert). The program.

But that’s not it for Frank. Next, he travels to the city center of Hamburg (admittedly, not very long distance from the Bergedorf headquarters, but still). He and Marion Knebel, head of our Berlin office, offer the workshop “DITA – ganz konkret" to the tekom regional group for North Germany.

At the same time, Ulrike Parson will have boarded an airplane to Budapest. She will probably make some last-minute corrections in her talk about content delivery, which she presents at the UA Europe conference on June 10.

Back from Budapest, Ulrike will also be seen in downtown Hamburg. Together with Marion Knebel, she presents the second DITA workshop to the tekom regional group at the Quality Hotel Ambassador.

We will have plenty to talk about in this blog, provided that I get a hold of my dear colleagues.
