Autumn Technical Writing Conferences

Autumn is coming, so it’s high time to buy a ticket to a technical writing conference.

The LavaCon

Portland, Oregon
27–30 October

LavaCon started in Hawaii (hence our name) to help senior content professionals stay ahead of rapidly changing authoring and publishing technologies.

Our 17th annual conference focuses on how to unify content from silos across the enterprise, leverage new immersive technologies, and create stellar content experiences.

However, LavaCon is more than just a conference. It’s a gathering place where practicing industry professionals share their best practices and lessons learned, network with peers, and build professional relationships that will last for years to come.

API the Docs

10–11 October

API The Docs is an event for tech writers, API developers, product owners and developer evangelists who embrace documentation as a crucial aspect of a great developer experience. The conference is a great opportunity to share and discuss the latest best practices, strategies and new trends relevant to API documentation and developer portals!
