Building awesome technical writers from open source communities

Speaker: Cameron Shorter

The secrets behind inspiring an open source software community to write awesome docs. A story about how we initially got it wrong before improving. (Spoiler – technical writers play a cornerstone role).

Cameron is a software developer, business analyst, open source community builder, and accidental technical writer.

Tech Writers as Agents of Change in the Digital Age

Speaker: Priya Varghese

As we race through the digital era, swiping away one app after another, there are numerous companies and organizations out there that haven’t yet strapped themselves in properly for the digital transformation roller coaster.

Priya Varghese (a technical writer) talks about how technical communicators can become agents of change (in a disguised double role), with the key skills, advantages and vantage points to successfully help their teams on board the digital transformation journey.

Getting started for developer documentation

A lightning talk.

Deepti Korwar, a technical writer, talks about the necessary skills and available resources for writers considering to move into developer documentation roles.
