After our first Meetup, we know that many of us have unique and useful expertise in a number of areas.

Eric Holscher, organizer of the Write The Docs ( conferences, will join us! I gather he has yet to make plans for Write The Docs 2015 ... :)


We have scheduled the following Lightning Talks for our July 1 Meetup:

* When a Tech Writer becomes a Systems Administrator (Mike J)
* Darwin Information Type Architecture (Melanie J.)
* Markdown (Ed B.)
* Keep it on the QC (Eric S.)
* Style Guides, tone, and audience (Michelle F.)
* What do we want from a presentation on RESTful API docs (Jennifer R.)
* Read The Docs (Eric H.)


Don’t worry about creating a polished presentation. I know I won’t be polished with my talk. For a lightning talk, 5 minutes is plenty.

Furthermore, a Lightning Talk can be a preview, something that you could extend into a complete presentation, possibly for a future Write The Docs PDX meeting.
