I presented at the Everything Open 2023 conference in Melbourne. My talk was called Boost your project’s trust signals with great docs!
I work at Open Strategy Partners, where trust plays a big part in how we communicate.
After my talk, the questions and discussion that arose from the audience showed that there was a big interest in docs and tech writing, and their associated challenges like:
- too many docs
- not enough docs
- where to publish the docs
- working with tech contributors
- the loneliness of lone writers.
Overall, it was a friendly, welcoming, professional event, with a wonderful organizing committee and supportive tech staff. The live streaming went off without a hitch! Really cool.
