During this presentation, Todd will outline and describe how release documentation is like the CliffsNotes of technical communication – a tool that people can study and learn from. You can get deeper content with traditional user guides or assistance, but release notes and similar materials hit the highlights and outline the big picture. For busy professionals who don’t have time to read an entire manual (novel), there’s a lot of value in short-format documentation – it’s often the first and only material your colleagues and clients ever read. Learn how to extract and collect this type of important content and package it for the biggest impact on your audiences.
