Creating User Documentation in an Agile World

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

When the Agile Manifesto was introduced in 2001, it did not make any allowance for or reference to creating user content. Since then, technical communicators have adopted Agile practices and adapted themselves to Agile methodologies; however, sometimes it feels like we are fitting a square peg into a round hole, but it doesn’t have to be that way! This presentation will address ways to smooth off that square peg and adapt traditional documentation processes and procedures to fit in an Agile world. We’ll discuss pros and cons of creating content using Agile methodologies. You will see ways for technical writers to become active participants and leaders in scrum teams, and strategies for tracking documentation work using Agile tools.
