As tech comm professionals, we employ a wide variety of skills and techniques in our work. We are particularly challenged by having to master a wide range of disciplines. From foundation skills like writing and editing—to the coding of content—to usability testing and user interface design, we find ourselves in a profession that is difficult to define.

  • What is it that we really do?
  • What emphasis do we place on writing and editing—versus coding and design skills?
  • What platforms do we support?
  • Which technologies are most important to us?

Through a series of surveys, collaboration with peers, and discussions with leading technical communicators, Joe Welinske has some answers to those questions.

In this session, Joe will present a snapshot of our collective professional life in an attempt to identify what we value in our daily work as user assistance professionals.
