Next Meetup

Documentation in Agile workshop
Come along to our next Write the Docs North meetup in Manchester! This time it's a workshop focusing on Documentation in Agile. This event is open to anyone at all interested in learning about documentation in Agile. The first half of our event will be a talk given by Technical Writer Deborah Barnard on Documentation in Agile. The second half is time for discussing and socialising. We can provide tea and coffee. What is Agile, you may ask? You'll find out about Agile – and more – in this workshop delivered by a certified "scrum developer". Many people are interested in Agile as a methodology for software development that emphasises lean, people-centric and results-focused ways of working. This contrasts the traditional "waterfall" approach which emphasises building software according to set requirements. Though Agile began as a way to develop software, the manifesto has spread to many areas of business. Check out the Agile Manifesto: http://agilemanifesto.org/

    What we're about

    This is the North England meetup of Write the Docs (http://www.writethedocs.org/). We're all about having social meetups for technical writers, developers, testers, writers of all sorts, and anyone who is interested in learning more about documentation.

    Social meetups will usually have a suggested topic for discussion to provide some structure, and may start with a (brief, informal) presentation on the topic. If we do a workshop, it will be a collaborative learning session.

    We currently run meetups in Leeds, Bradford and Manchester. We'd love to hear from people interested in organising meetups elsewhere!

    We have created a North England group, rather than a city-specific group, in order to split the organisational burden. We recognise there aren't huge numbers of writers in any city in northern England, and hope that this way we can have an active group that serves a wide area.

    You can find our Code of Conduct at the Write the Docs website (http://www.writethedocs.org/code-of-conduct/).
