An amazing event for technical writers was held on September 18-20 this year in Prague, Czech Republic! Thanks to all organizers, speakers and attendees. Prague is a perfect place to meet people who do the same stuff as you do, your ex-colleagues and old friends. The conference was so inspiring that I decided to start blogging again 🙂
So… here are my conference notes. As a technical writer, I will try to only highlight the essentials.
Best Speech – Joan Wendt – Operations Technical Writing for Data Centers. A lady from Google who writes technical documentation for data centers. She uses camera for screen shots and a ladder and a torch instead of specifications. More information is here.
Live Notes – One of the girls was making live notes throughout the conference and shared them here. Great job!
Light Talks – A great idea for those who want to start as a speaker. Anyone could tell anything to the audience within 5 minutes with the discussion following in the Unconference room.
Organization – I’ve attended several events like this in Western Europe and this one gets to my first place so far. I will definitely try to get to Write the Docs Europe 2017.
