What is Write the Docs?

Write the Docs is a global community of people who care about documentation: Programmers, Tech Writers, Customer Support, Designers, Project Managers, Developer Advocates, and anyone else who wants people to have a great experience with software.

Created in 2013 in Portland, Oregon, WTD has hosted conferences around the world in Prague, Sydney, Amsterdam, London, and Melbourne.

We invite you to our 12th Portland conference to join 400 other attendees to explore the art and science of documentation! Tickets go on sale December 2023.
