TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
There's nothing leading-edge about XML. DITA and DocBook are old news.
Among developers, for most purposes XML seems to have been supplanted
by JSON. I keep seeing reports of people doing tech docs with
Markdown, AsciiDoc, and similar yet-another-markup-languages, but the
associated tools seem quite lame compared with what's available for
DITA and DocBook.
InDesign is not suitable for technical authoring unless you deliver
only PDF and/or print.
