Roundtable: New to the field!

Online event

Whether you're a newly-minted technical writer, looking to get into the profession, or a seasoned campaigner - bring your ideas, questions, and resources for this session. We'll talk about getting into the tech writing field and getting up to speed once you're in.

The topics we will discuss include:
- First job as a technical writer (both landing the job and doing the job)
- Technical skills in technical writing
- Contributing to open source projects (if you have an open-source plug, bring you pitch!)

We also want to hear from you about topics you are interested in. Participate in the poll below to let us know what you want to see addressed during the roundtable. We'll select three topics from audience contribution and publish the final list of the topics one week before the event.
