Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Docbook workshop syllabi?

I have not done the webinar, but instead use a document that covers the basics and how all of the Docbook documentation is done in my shop. It is designed to take someone who does not know about Docbook and take them through the steps and ends up with them using Docbook.
It covers a lot from the editor to Subversion. It does not cover what is in the stylesheets, but rather what stylesheet to use to get a particular output.
It one of those "In case I die" docs. ;-)

Has anyone developed a half-day workshop or one-or-two-hour webinar on Docbook?

I work with a software project that is considering a proposal to adopt Docbook for its documentation needs. It has been suggested that a workshop might help build buy-in and bring more people into the native-XML-production fold (versus producing documentation on the wiki or in Word, the two formats now used for our project). Some of the topics considered for this workshop/webinar include demonstrating the use of core elements in a model chapter, using communications devices such as tips and callouts, and possibly even advanced topics such as interacting with subversion, automating the transformation to multiple formats, etc. 

The goals would be that participants would walk away from the workshop more familiar and comfortable with Docbook, and with a nice sample template in hand for those interested in making contributions.

If you've developed such a workshop I'd love to hear from you.
