We'll share our experience with learning about Write the Docs (http://conf.writethedocs.org/), and then using a Write-the-Docs approach to migrate our technical documentation from a traditional authoring and publishing system to a new system that encourages collaboration, creativity, and increased participation in the content development process.

We'll highlight how the Write the Docs has changed our approach and attitude toward content authoring and publishing, and exploded the opportunities we have to collaborate with programmers, writers, designers, and other product stakeholders in our company and others within the open source community.

We also want to hear about your experience, as a writer, programmer, tester, UX designer, or human being dealing with the challenges of creating and delivering high quality documentation.

• What challenges are you facing to writing content quickly
and effectively, getting reviews, and integrating with user
and product interfaces?

• Have you heard of Write the Docs? How about
ReadtheDocs?

• Are you using any innovative or effective approaches to
create and deliver your documentation that you'd like to
share?

We're excited about developing a documentarian community (https://write-the-docs.readthedocs.org/) in the Greater Austin area where people who care about writing and delivering high quality content can collaborate to improve our craft.

Hope you can join us!
