Tech Comm Survival Merit Badge Training
The dangers are everywhere, and frankly, it takes too much time and effort to fix those same disasters again and again.
Join Matt Sullivan for his 2-hour Ambassador workshop where he’ll show you how to use a digital machete and tech comm compass to guide you through the tangled overgrowth that is most technical communication.
Matt will share his own survival stories, but more importantly, he will use your tech comm experiences to show you how you can identify dangerous (but too common) tech comm scenarios and safely resolve them.
It’s the Unconference, after all, so topics may include but are not limited to:
- content reuse
- evaluation of need for structure
- choosing the “right” tool mix based on content
And, of course, attendees will determine the topics and their order!
Prerequisites: No prerequisites needed for this session, but students are encouraged to bring a laptop with their content editor of choice (FrameMaker, RoboHelp, Flare, Word, Notepad, lump of coal, etc.) and working content as permitted.
We’ll be discussing strategies for reducing formatting effort and improving content reuse using either structured or unstructured documents.
When: 27 April 2019, 8:30 am – 10:30 am
Workshop leader: Matt Sullivan, Tech Comm Tools and Adobe Technical Communication Partner
Matt is Adobe’s Ambassador to TC Camp. He is a content experience strategist who helps both large and small organizations deliver exacting content to their audience. He is a real world Eagle Scout and still uses the skills and knowledge he learned a few times a month. His daughters recently asked him to take them backpacking, but he’s pretty sure they’ll back off when they find out why backpackers need to carry a 6” trowel with them.
This workshop is free to attend
