TC Camp in Santa Clara to be held Jan 21, 2017
The TC Camp Unconference is one of my favorite conferences for a number of reasons:
- The sessions are user-led
- The audience consists mainly of Bay area tech writers
- It’s free and just 2 miles from my house
To learn more TC Camp, see the previous interview I did with Liz Fraley: Why is the TC Camp Unconference format so popular? Interview with Liz Fraley, TC Camp Founder
Before the unconference, several morning workshops are held (for minimal fees). Additionally, the day before the conference, on January 20, Peter Gruenbaum, president of SDK Bridge and author of four online courses on writing API documentation on Udemy, each of which I have reviewed on this site (1, 2, 3, 4), will be giving a full-day API workshop. This workshop is a great opportunity to learn API documentation from a guru in the field.
