CSS smart selectors: making CSS work for you!
This session shows you how to write cleverly-coded ‘smart’ selectors to replace class attributes that you may have been using in your HTML. Experience at past conferences has taught us that we can rely on Dave Gash to introduce something to save you time and reduces maintenance. This presentation is no exception.
Opening the Innovation Door – rethinking DITA
Not another DITA presentation you might think, but this one opens up a new view of using DITA. Tony Self will show us how, by moving our legacy documents to DITA, how we can revitalise them using the tools available. Tools that really reduce the time for a process for which you never find time.
This presentation is definitely worth attending.
How to be an efficient writer
I’m sure everyone reading this will have experienced the struggle it sometimes can be to stay on track, especially if you are describing about your own work. While Dr Marina Hurley specializes in scientific writing her advice will apply to all of us.
Web page speed basics
I’m sure we’ve all had experience of slow loading web pages and the frustration they cause. Don’t let that happen to pages that you design! In his presentation, Dave Gash isn’t only referring to web sites, but any documentation pages that you may create. Learn how to measure load speed and how to improve it.
That’ll never happen: impossible documentation
Tony Self argues that the applications and services that we often document are cutting edge, but their accompanying documentation is rarely so.
Is he right? I think he is and for that reason, I really, really recommend that you don’t miss this presentation.
Introduction to Blockchain
There can’t be many technical communicators who haven’t heard of blockchain. What exactly is it?
Will it be used for applications as we know them?
And will we have to learn a new technology, a new way of documenting applications that employ it?
Find out the answers to these questions at this presentation by Grant Noble. You can’t afford to miss it!
Simplified Technical English
So many of us think we know what is meant by simplified technical English, but do we? It’s not the same as plain English and is very specific for documentation in certain industries. So get on board, and learn just what it means – just in case you see a desirable job advert for this skill.
