How Trends in API Documentation Differ from other Tech Comm Trends

12 Mar 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Register on EventBrite

Do you have an interest or experience working on Application Programming Interface (API) documentation? If yes, then this webinar is for you! In this webinar, you will learn from industry giant, Tom Johnson, about API tools, workflows, challenges, and best practices, which are quite distinct from other types of documentation commonly produced by technical writers.

Tom will compare developer documentation trends (gathered from his API Survey) with other more general trends in tech comm (from other industry surveys). The comparison of tools, workflows, and other practices should provide an interesting perspective into the unique world of dev docs. Get involved, and respond to Tom’s survey by March 1, 2020. (You can also check out Tom’s ongoing, live API Survey Results here.)

During the webinar, Tom will present his survey findings and analyze the results. His goal is to share helpful insights to assist technical writers working in the developer documentation space, or on other types of engineering documentation.

Tom Johnson is a senior technical writer for Amazon in Sunnyvale, California. He is best known for his blog idratherbewriting.com, which has one of the largest followings in the TechComm community. Tom has also created an extensive online API Documentation Course, which has helped hundreds of technical writers transition into API documentation.

This webinar is offered through GoToMeeting, and will be recorded. You can attend through the free GoToMeeting app on your mobile device, or in a web browser. You will receive connection information via email two days before the webinar. If you do not receive it, contact events@events.stcwdc.org.
