NOTE: we're returning to New Relic and Tuesday for our September Meetup


Open source makes writing and publishing much easier both online and in print — provided you know what tools to use. This talk covers those tools (from LaTeX to WordPress) and how to choose between them.

Open source tools for writing and publishing (both online and in print) continue to improve. This talk will blast through options for writing, publishing, and getting feedback — and discuss what you should care about when you’re writing. Does the GPL license on WordPress matter? What about a tool’s ability to handle Markdown? Perhaps most importantly, this talk will also cover when tools and stack questions can get in the way of actually writing.


Our speaker this meetup is Thursday Bram*, who writes about technical topics of all sorts. She’s the co-founder of Urgency Inc, a technical marketing agency. (Despite the name of our speaker, we're meeting on Tuesday.)

Thursday* gave this talk during the Open Source Bridge conference back in June.

** Despite the first name of our speaker, our meetup is on Tuesday !**
