Sydney technical communicators meeting at Atlassian on Friday 7 October

The next meeting of the Sydney CBD technical communicators group is on Friday 7 October. This month it will happen at the Atlassian offices and it’s all about agile methodologies. Can you come? Lunch is on the house!

Thank you to Bede Sunter for all his hard work in arranging these great monthly meetings. This month’s meeting will start with a short presentation, following on to an interactive story-telling session.

  • I will give a short presentation – a brief introduction to agile methodologies.
  • Giles Gaskell, another Atlassian technical writer, will host a Q&A session where people can talk about their own encounters with agile methodologies. The Atlassian technical writers will tell short stories about how we work with our agile development teams. Anyone else can share their experiences too.

Come prepared, if you’d like to tell us a tale of something that went well or not so well, share a technique, describe a sprint or just ask a question.

Date and time: Friday 7 October, 12:30 to 1:30pm.
Place: Atlassian offices, 173-185 Sussex Street, Sydney. (Google maps.) Come up the stairs to the boardroom.
Lunch: Free. Thank you Atlassian!
Who can come: Anyone interested in technical communication.
RSVP: Drop a comment on this blog post, and I’ll email you. (Your email address will not be published.)

Possum in the daylight

A rare sight: A possum out in the daylight. Spotted a few days ago.

  1. I am trying to find the link between the picture of the possum and the post. Are agile technical writers as rare a sight in daylight as possums? They only emerge after the sprint has finished? 🙂

    • Ha ha, hallo Hamish!
      There were actually two of the possums, and they were both quite small and nimble. I got the impression that they were up after bedtime, agilely avoiding mother’s calls to come safely home to rest. 😉
      Cheers, Sarah

  2. Hi Sarah,

    I wish I were in Australia to attend it. Alas! I am in India, any way you can share a podcast/video of the presentation or is it for members only?

    • Hallo Shweta
      I wish you were here too. It would be great to meet you in person. The session is open to non-members too, but unfortunately we don’t have plans to record it. That’s a good idea for the future.
      Cheers, Sarah
