Session 4 

The Session: Using ID Principles to design Tech Writing Content
As tech writers, we are often lost in Q&A with SMEs, gathering content, adding examples and sample code, arranging content, adhering to style guide – so much so that we forget the user. If we pause at the beginning to answer questions such as who is the intended audience, what is their entry level, what topics/ tasks would they need to do after reading the doc – our guides will become user centric. They will be of value to the end user. ID principles can help direct the content creation process and help us create user-focused guides.
I’d like to pick up one such principle that has helped me.
The Speaker: Deepti Sawhney
