Scott Abel has put together a new conference called Technical Documentation Roundup, held May 21-23, 2019, in Menlo Park, California. If you're interested in attending the conference, there's currently an opportunity to get two tickets for the price of one.
I asked Scott to tell me a little bit about the conference. Here’s the high-level description:
Technical Documentation RoundUp Conference
Brought to you by The Content Wrangler, Technical Documentation RoundUp takes place May 21-23, 2019, in Menlo Park, California. Join us for three days filled with presentations, discussions, case studies, and hands-on workshops designed to teach you how modern technical communication shops create, manage, and deliver technical content.
The first day of The RoundUp is focused on helping you better understand yourself and those you serve. We’ve invited some of the best and brightest experts from the fields of cognitive psychology, human-computer interaction, communication leadership, and personal productivity to help us master the science behind understanding people and the art of influencing them.
