The Topic

Automating Release Notes: A new approach

About the Session

Practical constraints wouldn’t allow massive changes to process. Doc writers are constrained by time. Mechanical tasks take over huge amounts of time – experts’ time being misused. Automating these mechanical tasks gives more time to the doc writers.

It is very useful for the document writer to create release notes in a few seconds and send them to stakeholders for their quick review. We can publish release notes at the desired location in any format we want, which saves time and reduces review cycles.

About the Presenter

He has worked with documentation, build, and deployment teams in his career at industry-leading organizations. His innovative strategies and execution of product documentation and document build systems have had a far-reaching impact on enterprise documentation delivery in general. He is capable to bring a unique balance of product and technical understanding to the documentation team.

The Topic

Building a Work Journal: Beyond Metrics


About the Session

Assessing the quality of Technical documentation is often regarded as highly subjective, making it challenging to measure or evaluate the work being done.

While user metrics can provide valuable insight into the efficacy of any documentation, a well-maintained work journal comes in handy in documenting a writer’s process and efforts.

Building a work journal goes beyond simply recording daily tasks; it is a potent tool that can enhance productivity, monitor progress, and demonstrate work processes.

The session will delve into the process of building a work journal tailored to tech writers, allowing them to showcase their process effectively.
