Countdown to the first Write the Docs Sydney meetup of 2020

A new year. A new decade. New friends and old. New skills. New ideas. It’s all happening in Sydney at the first 2020 meetup of Write the Docs Australia’s Sydney group. The date is nearly upon us!

The meetup is open to technical writers in all disciplines, and to engineers, editors, product managers, and others I’ve unwittingly left out. If you think technical documentation is a good thing, you’re in. If you think technical documentation is not a good thing, you’re in too. Just be prepared to explain your reasoning. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Date and time: Tuesday 25 February at 6pm to 7.30pm.
  • Location: Google, 48 Pirrama Road, Pyrmont. (Map.)
  • Registration: Sign up to the meetup and then clickย Attend, or email me. Details are on the Meetup page.

Pizza and conversation are a given. We also have two talented and interesting speakers lined up:

David Parker (Deaf Dave) will talk about Accessible Media for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

From David:

My short presentation will be about how accessible media is for the deaf and hard of hearing communities in Australia and worldwide. Digital examples will be given. I will talk about myself as a Deaf person and how I utilise technology to do my job effectively.

Giles Gaskell will talk about Using Antora to build public and internal docs sites.

From Giles:

At Squiz, we’ve built a powerful documentation system with Antora. This presentation provides an overview of how we’ve used Antora and other tools to produce both our public documentation site, and an internal site with additional docs for review and Squiz staff only.

I’m looking forward to this gathering of doc-aware people! I hope you can make it.

  1. How did it go? I’m hoping to go to the Prague event for the first time this year.

    • Hallo Tom

      The meetup went very well. We had around 25 attendees. Both talks were excellent, and lively discussions ensued.

      Write the Docs Prague is great. I went last year for the first time. I hope you do get to attend it this year!
