6:00 pm - 7:30 pm - Virtual presentation and Q&A

"Recent developments in technology and in tech comm are complicating what used to be a fairly stable environment."

  • “Mobile” is becoming more and more prominent in society, but does tech comm apply to mobile? And how do we even define “mobile” when faced with hundreds of different mobile devices?
  • HTML5 is a hot topic, but what does it offer that we haven’t done for years with browser-based help?
  • What’s responsive design?
  • What’s a fluid grid and why might it be important in tech comm?

And more…

This presentation discusses a dozen developments in tech comm, some new and some older but still relevant, including:

  • The strategic side of tech comm: Why technical communicators need to learn to speak business-ish
  • The business side of tech comm: Will eLance and Freelance hit tech comm?
  • The “undesktop”: Developing for unknown platforms and devices and the need for standards
  • Responsive design
  • HTML5 and its strategic implications
  • Good coding practices
  • Topic-based and structured authoring
  • Analytics, legacy material, social media, the cloud, and more…

If you’re wondering what new challenges you may face in the next few years, come to this session.
