Lunch-time talk on API technical writing

I’ll be speaking at the lunchtime meeting of the Sydney CBD Technical Writers’ Group on Wednesday 6th August. This group is led by Bede Sunter on behalf of the Australian Society for Technical Communication NSW. The session is free of charge, and open to all. You’re invited! (Please bring your own lunch.)

The talk is titled, “API Technical Writing: What, Why, and How“.

Have you ever wondered what API technical writers do, and how they go about it? Perhaps you’d like to move into developer-focused documentation yourself, and need some tips on getting started.

Join us to discuss what an API is and poke some easy-to-use APIs that you can play with later yourself. Examine examples of API documentation, pick up a few useful tools, and grab some ideas on getting started in this field. It’s an exciting and rewarding area of technical communication.

Date and time: Wednesday 6 August, from 12:30 to 1:30.


Level 21, HSBC Building
580 George Street – close to Town Hall Station
Sydney, Australia
Offices of TP3 Group
Ask at reception on level 21 for the room number

RSVP: Please add a comment to this page if you’re coming, so that we know how many people to expect over and above the usual crowd. 🙂

  1. I would like to attend.

  2. That sounds really interesting – I’ve been wanting to know more about API tech writing for a while. Unfortunately, being on the other side of the world, I won’t be able to come! Would you consider writing a blog post on the same topic?

  3. Hi Sarah
    This is something I’m really interested in. Any chance this will be recorded as I’m in Melbourne?

  4. Hallo Beth and Jenni

    The session won’t be recorded, but I do have the presentation on Slideshare: API Technical Writing: What, Why and How”. The talk at the Sydney CBD technical writers group this week will be very similar.

    Beth, I’m not sure where in the world you are. Is there any chance you’d be near Santa Clara, California, at the end of this month? I’m giving the talk for the STC Silicon Valley Chapter.
