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!
Sign up for the mailing list to get announcements and updates about the conference.
