About the Conference

About the Conference

We invite you to join hundreds of other folks for a three-day event to explore the art and science of documentation. The Write the Docs Portland conference covers any topic related to documentation in the software industry. Past talks have also covered such diverse topics as empathy, the history of math symbols, and using emoji to keep your users’ attention.

Write the Docs brings everyone who writes the docs together in the same room: Writers, Developers, Developer Relations, and Support Staff. We all have things to learn, and there’s no better way than coming together in the same room and getting to know each other.

The main presentation track takes place from May 7-8 (Monday and Tuesday) from 9am to 6pm. We will return to the historic Crystal Ballroom, centrally located in the heart of Portland. During the main event we also run an Unconference downstairs in Lola’s Room.
