A Writer Living with Developers

A session at Write The Docs EU: BERLIN Unconference 2014

Sunday 20th July, 2014

10:30am to 11:00am (CET)

*Session recording at VoiceRepublic*

I arrived at Prezi as a technical writer used to dealing with engineers of the construction variety. After nine years working in Korea, I was shocked to find that upon my return to the West, nerds had inherited the earth and with it, my world. I now spend my days writing material that explains, promotes, evangelizes, and sometimes even influences their work.

This talk is about the challenges, learning curves, and (most importantly) vaguely amusing anecdotes of my eighteen months living amongst those who code. Or to put it in developer-speak, I include best practices as well as experiences of how I messed up when trying to convince 120 engineers that they needed to place greater value on words and write more often.
