Understanding XML and ASD S1000D for Engineers – two-day training course

S1000D and XML – One of the biggest issues we face in technical communication is we are having to educate some of our engineers on the basics of XML, the why, the when and the how. Often there is confusion around what we use XML for, the power and flexibility it gives us in all forms of technical data production, transformation and deployment. As our product experts, it is important engineers know the fundamentals of XML – that is why we developed this course!

Mike Ingledew

A trained aircraft engineer (rotorcraft), I entered in to the field of technical information writing S1000D data modules on a major European military platform.

After a series of high profile project roles and the privilege of supporting clients worldwide, I ended my 'employed' career at a subsidiary of Boeing Aircraft after I decided to leave and focus on TDW full-time.

From my time supporting clients worldwide, I could see that there was a market need for an independent organisation that could be a trusted advisory source for those needing to implement successful technical information strategies.

I am passionate about the art of technical communications and the process, software and skills needed in our market.
