About the sessions and speakers

Session 1: Voice First by Subhajit Sengupta

About the Speaker
Manager, Content and Communication and Training at Digite Inc. Mumbai
I would like to better known as an eternal learner who thrives on learning something new every day. I love to learn and internalize something that will enrich me and my ecosystem and propel growth and happiness. I also take an interest in storytelling. Be it explaining the concept of fractions to my daughter or developing a Help Chatbot for our products, I take the approach of a storyteller. Want to know what story I am weaving now? Get in touch with me.
About the Session
Do you know that voice and image searches are going to make up at least half of all searches by 2020? Have you realized that the new audio-centric technologies such as Apple’s AirPods, Google Home, and Amazon’s Echo are turning “voice-first” interactions into ubiquitous experiences? If not, then join my session to get a pulse of the Voice industry and how it is rapidly transitioning into a pervasive interaction mode. Also, get some high-level overview of the Voice UX and some of its best practices.


Session 2: IDiot-proofing Instructional Design by Mukta Raut

About the Speaker

Freelancer Instructional Designer
I am a freelance writer and instructional designer. I have been doing both for close to 16 years now. Nearly 11 years were spent in different kinds of jobs and a trail of different projects. Since the last 5 years, I have been my own boss and my own slave.
About the Session
If Technical Writing and Instructional Design (ID) were cousins, they’d be the distant yet polite ones…the sort who would hang out at parties just fine but have a vague idea about what the other does for a living. (“You do manuals, I do storyboards” is a little too simplistic.) Since tech-writing and instructional design have a “same-same but different” vibe going on, we thought we’d chat a little bit about that. The session covers what ID is, where it intersects with tech-writing, and how IDs connect the dots to a larger context when working on their solutions. There will be a fun little activity at the end of the session. (If not fun, it will be painless. In current times, that too is good.)


Session 3: Docs-as-Code by Pallavi Deshpande & Punit Shrivastava

About the Speaker

Pallavi: Senior Technical Writer, OpsRamp (LinkedIn profile)

Punit: Director, Technical Documentation, OpsRamp (LinkedIn Profle)

About the Session

We’ve always had it the other way around. Docs have to meet software requirements, well actually, Product Requirements. But what happens when the software engineering lifecycle meets Documentation?

How does this work? How did we implement at OpsRamp!

An interactive talk-through.
