What is Write the Docs?

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

We invite you to join 400 other folks in our event to explore the art and science of documentation.

Please review our Health and Safety policy to ensure a safe conference for all our attendees.
