September 18 - 20 in Prague, Czech Republic

Thanks!

Thanks to everyone who made this year another wonderful event. We’re so grateful to our sponsors, speakers, volunteers, and attendees for making the conference possible.

We have posted the photos, transparency report, and videos from the conference for those who couldn’t attend. Hopefully they allow you to bask in the beauty of the event from the comfort of your own chair.

We hope you’ll join us again next year. We’ll be announcing details about our 2017 conference soon.

About

Join 250 people for a three-day event to explore the art and science of documentation. You can look forward to learning more about documentation systems, tech writing theory, information delivery, and more. Past talks have also covered such diverse topics as typography, empathy, and Wabi-sabi.

Write the Docs brings everyone who writes the docs together in the same room: Writers, Developers, Support Folks. We all have things to learn from each other, and there’s no better way than sitting together and talking.

The main presentation track takes place from September 19-20 (Monday and Tuesday) from 9am to 6pm. Each afternoon we will also host an unconference room in parallel to the main presentations, where you can break away to open-space sessions, workshops, hackfests, or smaller discussions. On Sunday before the main conference we will hold a writing day and welcome reception.

Our venue for the conference and writing day is the Auto Klub right next to the train station in the Prague city center. Inspired by the Crystal Ballroom, the main presentations will be held in (you guessed it) a ballroom, and the unconference sessions will be held in adjoining rooms.

The venue has a long history and beautiful architecture, as well as a few surprises! Auto Klub is accessible with an internal lift and ramps from the street level.
