AODC 2009 wrapup

Last week I attended the 2009 Australasian Online Documentation and Content Conference (AODC) in Melbourne. This is the second year that I’ve been to this conference, and I highly recommend it for anyone interested in technical writing or communication.

A big “thank you” to the AODC organisers, and especially to Tony Self, Penny Bradley and Mick McMahon. The conference ran without a hitch. It’s worth attending just for the social events and networking. As a bonus, the speakers and sessions were interesting too πŸ˜‰

There were 19 sessions in total. I have blogged about some of them:


Never been to Melbourne? Neither had I. It’s a fun city, and quite different in character to Sydney. The AODC conference happened at the Vibe Savoy hotel. Here’s the view from my hotel window, overlooking the Southern Cross Station out towards Docklands:

I’ve heard that AODC 2010 will be in Darwin. I haven’t been there yet either. Hope to see you there πŸ™‚
