Looking forward to AODC 2010 technical writing conference
Honk if you’re coming to AODC 2010. I’ll be there too. Who could resist, when the session titles promise such delights as “Creating Auto-Magic TOCs with XSLT”, “WinANT Echidna” and “the DITA Wolf”? And of course “spectacular jumping crocs”… oh wait, that’s afterwards. 😉
This will be the 13th Australasian Online Documentation and Content Conference. I’ve been to the last two. They were awesome and I’m so pleased I can go again this year. I found the quality of the sessions to be excellent: focused, on topic and full of information.
I’ve also met some really great people at the last two conferences. It’s a smallish group, compared to other bigger conferences. That’s part of what makes AODC special.
Here are a few articles and posts about the session content in past years:
- Janet Taylor’s report on AODC 2009.
- Rhonda Bracey’s posts about day 3 of AODC 2008, day 2 and day 1.
- My wrapup of AODC 2009 and AODC 2008, each with links to individual posts about the sessions.
This year the conference is in Darwin. I haven’t been up that way before. I’m planning to take a tour of Litchfield national park and I’ve even booked myself onto a “spectacular jumping croc cruise”! People say Kakadu is awesome too. It’s a bit much to fit into just the few days I have off this time. Maybe next year’s AODC will be in Darwin again.
