Invitation to a webinar about doc sprints tomorrow

Along with the Society for Technical Communication (STC) I’ll be presenting a webinar tomorrow, about doc sprints. It would be great if you can join us!

The webinar is titled Doc Sprints: The Ultimate in Collaborative Document Development. It’s full of information about planning and running a doc sprint, and how doc sprints are useful in developing the documentation our readers need.

As well as information gleaned when running doc sprints at Atlassian, I’ve included stories and tips from doc sprinters around the world: Anne Gentle, Swapnil Ogale, Ellis Pratt, Katya Stepalina, Andreas Spall, Jay Meissner, and Peter Lubbers. The stories are what make a good doc sprint awesome.

How to sign up for the webinar

Dates, times, and registration details are on the STC site: Doc Sprints: The Ultimate in Collaborative Doc Development.

    • Hallo Ellis!
      In the presentation, I tell the story of the user macros that you wrote for Confluence, and how you wanted to take part in the doc sprint in order to document those macros, but were away during the actual dates of the sprint. It’s a great illustration of how a doc sprint planner should be flexible, to allow people to do their sprint either early or late.
      Cheers, Sarah

  2. Hi Sarah,
    I signed up for your presentation on the STC site. However, I did not receive the dial-in information. Please respond as soon as you can.
    Thanks,
    Tasnim

    • Hallo Tasnim
      So sorry to hear the dial-in information was slow to arrive. I’m really glad you could connect although a little late. Thanks for attending!
      Cheers
      Sarah

  4. do you credit FLOSS Manuals as being the originator of this methodology? It would be great if you did so.

    • Hallo Adam
      Yes, at the beginning of the presentation is a section on FLOSS Manuals, Booksprint.net, and other early adopters. The presentation also includes quotes from and tributes to sprint organisers around the world.
      Cheers, Sarah
