2009 May Event — Being Agile With Your Documentation with Susan Patch

Being Agile With Your Documentation with Susan Patch

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

Agile environments can be both challenging and rewarding places for technical writers. Appropriate documentation is essential to the efficient production, testing, and acceptance of software. One way to be Agile with documentation is to evolve it in parallel with the system development — delivering user stories, use cases, UI designs, system tests, manuals, and even online help — with just enough detail, and just in time.

Come and explore some ways that you can be Agile with your documentation. This presentation isn’t intended to provide a silver bullet solution, but it may give you some ideas beyond those famous (infamous?) 3x5 index cards.

6:30 to 7:00 pm: registration, networking, and light refreshments
7:00 to 8:30: presentation
8:30 to 9:00: networking

Downtown YWCA Fitness Building, 4th floor
