TechWhirl: Technical Communication Recap for September 6, 2013

technical communication recap for July 5Just because it’s a short work week here in North America, doesn’t mean it’s not a busy one. As you wind it down, visit TechWhirl to get the lowdown on TCUK, the latest news and events, and some curated goodness in Tech Writer This Week.

That three-day weekend gave the email discussion list, a chance to ponder some new topics that might interest you: chickens and pigs and agile tech writers;  document checklists, vector tools for the Mac iOS crowd; lectures, PowerPoint, Jira, GitHub and a lively debate on starting chapters on recto, verso, or it-doesn’t-matter pages. If you don’t know “recto/verso” think about all those “this page intentionally left blank” docs you see, and you’ll start to understand why it’s a debate.  Carry on…

Have a great weekend!

From Galway to Bristol at Mach 2 for TCUK!

Like the smaller conferences in Poland and The Netherlands I have attended in the recent past, the reason I am making the trip to Bristol for TCUK 2013 this September is the same: for the motivation that comes from getting immersed in the inspiration and information writers bring to these gatherings.
