Write the Docs is a two-day conference focused on documentation systems, tech writing theory, and information delivery.

Writing and maintaining documentation involves the talents of a multidisciplinary community of technical writers, designers, typesetters, developers, support teams, marketers, and many others.

This conference creates a time and a place for this community of documentarians to share information, discuss ideas, and work together to improve the art and science of documentation.

We invite all those who write the docs to spread the word:

Docs or it didn't happen!

We will be having a hike on Sunday before the conference. Portland is one of the most beautiful cities in the USA, and has wilderness inside city limits. Come see what beauty hides in the hills behind town.

The hike will leave at 1pm. More information can be found on the Hike page.


Urban Airship will be kindly hosting the pre-registration event this year. Get your badges early, and get to know some other attendees before the conference starts.

Urban airship is located at 1417 NW Everett St. The event will run from 5pm to 8pm.


The Crystal Ballroom

This year’s Portland conference will be held at the Crystal Ballroom. It is a beautiful concert venue located in the middle of downtown Portland. We believe it will provide a great home for Write the Docs this year, with room to grow in the future.

We listened to people’s feedback last year, and one of the biggest issues was the lack of a “Hallway Track”. To help solve that problem, we also have booked Lola’s Room, which is a separate space in the same building. Lola’s Room will be available for use by attendees throughout the conference. The building also has a couple of other areas where you can have a conversation with someone new and interesting you just met.
