Lisa Dyer and I have co-authored another paper about structured wikis, using DITA as the structure for the wiki. The paper contains specific ideas about using wikis both internally and externally for software engineering processes and software documentation.
Our assertion is this: While either waterfall development methods or Agile development methods could benefit from the collaboration a wiki offers, we believe that DITA typing combined with the wiki collaboration offers even greater benefits than DITA alone or a wiki as a standalone authoring environment.
We think this one is worthy of a price tag, so it’s available for sale here at Just Write Click. You don’t need a PayPal account to purchase if you click-through the links that don’t require you to login to PayPal, you just need a credit card. Once you purchase it, you’ll go to a page with a download link to the PDF file. We’ve discontinued the selling of this paper and thanks to those of you who purchased it, read it, and took off with the ideas!
We’ve revised it based on feedback from three reviewers who had excellent commentary and were not technical writers, so it should contain useful information for technical writers, developers, software engineers, business analysts, project managers, and quality assurance engineers.
