The conference is just a few days away. We have some reminders, late-breaking information, and a few thanks are in order.
We hope you’re getting excited!
The conference wouldn’t be possible without our wonderful sponsors. This year, our sponsors are:
Google is our keystone sponsor this year, and has some fun things in store for the conference.
We’ll hear a bit more of what they’re doing at the conference from Jared Bhatti, a Senior Technical Writer at Google:
I’m Jared Bhatti, a tech writer at Google. Let me be the first to welcome you to this year’s Write the Docs.
Back in 2013, I was convinced by several fellow tech writers to attend a little-known writing conference in Portland. I was amazed to be at an event that spoke directly to the work I do on a daily basis. I found myself hooked, and I’ve attended the conference every year since then.
I’ve always taken pleasure in connecting with others in the fun and challenging world of technical writing, which is why I’m proud that Google is sponsoring this year’s Write the Docs. We’ll be working to keep things interactive for you by moderating a tech writer panel, running a few break-out sessions, participating in the Writing Day documentation sprints, and doing a UX study on some of our documentation. I invite you all to stop by our booth, learn more about tech writing at Google, participate in our study, and pick up some fun swag.
There’s going to be a tremendous amount of tech writing knowledge and wisdom in the room. I hope you’ll join us by participating and sharing your experience. I’m looking forward to meeting you all in Portland.
This is the fourth year of Write the Docs, and our community is growing. We have a fantastic venue in a beautiful city, and lots of interesting talks. Come ready to meet other people in the community, and have a great time.
See you soon!
