Portland Twofer: Write the Docs and Node PDX
Alright Portland, it’s a twofer! Two stellar conferences are coming up in the coming months. the first is Write the Docs on April 8th and 9th and the other is Node PDX on May 16th and 17th. You might remember Node PDX from the first conference last year. It was so successful we’ve started the effort again for this year.
Write the Docs is set as a two-day conference focusing on documentation systems, tech writing theory and information delivery. It will be held in the Mission Theater here in Portland.
Writing and maintaining documentation involves the talents of a multidisciplinary community of technical writers, designers, typesetters, developers, support teams, marketers, and many others. Whether you’re starting an open source project on github, or supporting documentation for an existing setup of applications and products, this conference is a must attend.
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. As we all have found, documentation is something we all need to push forward with in everything from established organizations to brand new open source projects. We invite all those who write the docs to spread the word: “Docs or it didn’t happen!”
For more information, visit Write the Docs.
Currently the dates are set, announcements for the location are coming soon, and a call for proposals has started.
