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

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!”

Node PDX

Currently the dates are set, announcements for the location are coming soon, and a call for proposals has started.

The plan, which is first being announced right here on Silicon Florist is for two tracks—one pure JavaScript goodness and the other will be hardware hacking related. We’ll have quad coptors and node planes and beer trains and more. If you’re interested in attending sign up now to be notified. If you’ve been hardware hacking or Javascript hacking get a proposal in today! The Node PDX Team is looking forward to hearing from you, don’t be shy about stating what you’d like to see!

  1. The next time I learn a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to learn, but I actually thought youd have one thing fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you may repair if you happen to werent too busy searching for attention.

  2. wonderful post, very informative. I wonder why the other experts of this sector don’t notice this. You should continue your writing. I’m confident, you’ve a huge readers’ base already!
