Adaptive content in Drupal, what we can learn from technical writers

Mobile is shaking the foundations of the publishing industry. There are just too many screen sizes to deal with manually, and content reuse is becoming more and more mainstream. So far 2 key trends have been gaining momentum for mobile publishing: responsive design and adaptive content. In this presentation, you'll learn about both techniques and how they complement each other. I'll then demonstrate how to build a multi-platform content strategy with these techniques using existing free open source modules in Drupal.

Technical writers have spent the last 100 years or so figuring out ways to improve the way they write and manage product documentation. Along the way they've developed a series of methodologies that make it possible to reuse documentation across publications and to save money on translation costs.

Mobile is making content reuse a mainstream concern. Learn how we can use adaptive content and methodologies from the technical communications world to raise to the occasion.
