How to Be a Great Tech Writer Without Being a Pain

How to Be a Great Tech Writer Without Being a Pain

Have you ever been told that you need to put your business hat on, and just embrace that new Content Management System (CMS), authoring process, or integration with localization? What if you would never have to hear this again? How would life as a tech writer be without the infighting? Is that even doable?

Andrew Lawless will share the science behind the reasons why the mind of the technical documentation writer drives other people crazy. He will describe strategies for building team synergy. If you are tired of strain and tension between management and your technical content authors — or even within your tech docs team — this keynote will give you new approaches to build synergy.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Avoid tech doc writers' blind spots in internal communication
  • Overcome the two fears of every technical documentation writer
  • Share your ideas and thoughts with others with ease
