Goals and Results

At evodion, software architects and IT consultants write code documentation and user stories for use cases. With a professional training in technical writing, evodion wanted to ensure the quality of this documentation.

Together with evodion, parson prepared a training plan, tailored to the individual needs of the software architects and IT consultants. Particular attention was paid to a balanced mixture of theory and practice (exercises).

The two-day training was held by a professional trainer from parson and included the following topics:

  • Standardization and structuring of technical documentation
  • Target group analysis and target-oriented writing
  • Terminology and writing rules
  • Visualization in technical documentation
  • Documentation processes
  • Online documentation
  • Topic-based writing
  • Introduction to DITA
  • Modularization and reuse
  • Variant management
  • XML standards in technical documentation



In various exercises, the participants could test and apply what they had just learned:

  • Recognize and assign information types
  • Analyze target groups
  • Apply writing rules and minimalist principles
  • Identify and assign topic types
  • Create DITA topics and DITA maps
  • Identify modules and variants
