With more and more software development teams switching from traditional waterfall to agile methods of development, technical communicators need to be flexible about their processes to work cleanly and efficiently. Sometimes, though, it feels like we are fitting a square peg into a round hole. It doesn’t have to be that way! This presentation will address ways to smooth off that square peg and adapt traditional documentation processes and procedures to make them fit in an agile world.
The 5th Annual TC Camp, the techcomm unconference, is coming up in 3 short weeks!
What’s an unconference?
It’s an intense day of learning that’s totally relevant to you! Sessions topics are defined by the attendees on the day of the event. There are no presenters, no juried presentations. Instead, you can join together with other like-minded people to discuss topics that interest you!
The afternoon unconference is free but we also have optional morning workshops available for a nominal fee that helps us cover the cost of the event. These morning workshops are run by techcomm luminaries and are designed to get your thinking going, early in the morning.
What hands-on workshops do we have lined up this year?
- Minimalism with Dawn Stevens
- Microlearning with TechSmith
- GIT with Mysti Berry
- Word to FrameMaker with Dustin Vaughn (Ambassador Workshop)
In addition to the unconference on Saturday, this year we have Peter Gruenbaum teaching an API Doc writing training class on Friday January 21st! If you’re trying to break into the API docs job market, there’s no better way to get started than this pre-camp training class!
What does it cost?
Main Unconference: FREE
Ambassador Workshop from Adobe: FREE
2-hour Hands-On Morning Workshop: $35
Full-Day API Docs Training Class: $125
The TC Camp is a day of unmatched, intense, learning, sharing, and networking for techcomm professionals. This is a great opportunity to get information on the latest trends and technologies, learn how your colleagues solve problems, and have a focused discussion with your tool vendor about important issues.
Join us Friday & Saturday January 20-21, 2017 at Mission College in Santa Clara, CA. This is YOUR TC Camp!
