Documenting Event Driven Architectures

Registration

Bio: I’m hired by Postman to work full time as maintainer and community builder at AsyncAPI Initiative, an open-source project that is a part of Linux Foundation. Last 6 years of my career were super close to event-driven APIs on different levels: as APIs consumer, maintainer, developer portal owner, events catalog owner ending up as a maintainer of AsyncAPI specification and its tools.

Workshop title: Documenting Event Driven Architectures

Workshop description: I’ll explain what event driven architectures are, how they relate to traditional REST APIs. How to document them, what parts are important, what specification can help. And I will introduce folks to AsyncAPI specification and basic tools.

Don't Fear Skynet: Using Artificial Intelligence in the Writing Process

Registration

Summary: Ai writing tools are on the rise … but no need to fear terminators. Ai tools can help generate ideas and content in our fast-paced writing world, which often depends on quantity and content reuse. Soon everyone will be using an Ai writing tool, and workplace and content writers should be prepared for this important shift. In this workshop, I’ll introduce several of the Ai tools on the market, discuss how they integrate in the writing process, and give participants a chance to play around with these tools.

A guide to OBS for Tech Communication

Video consumption of information was already increasingly popular, and in the past year, video consumption and usage has accelerated. There’s an increasing amount of video versions of blog posts, livestreaming of tutorials, online office hours, and much more.

 

What can this all mean to documentation, what role can technical writers take in creating video content, and most importantly, how do you keep information contained within videos up to date.

In-Depth Interviews for everyone - learn how to get the best out of client meetings!

Registration

Talking with clients, users, and learners is the pinnacle of project work. We’re not able to move forward without getting answers from other people, whoever they might be.

In this workshop, we’ll decode the method usually reserved for researchers, but quite accessible to everyone – In-Depth Interviews (IDIs)!

In this workshop we’ll show you:

  • How to shape a good overall goal for the interview.
  • How to prepare a universal scenario for pretty much every interview ever.
  • What are different question types, and what are they good for.
  • How to create good questions and support conversations.
