STC Houston will be holding a mini-conference on Saturday, February 16 that covers sharing content across an organization, teaching tech writing to engineers, and common sense DITA, among other topics. The event takes place from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM in Brenham, Texas.
Alan Porter will lead the “Intro to Content Engineering” segment of “Your Organization’s Content: A Workshop About Sharing Content Across Silos, Content Strategy, and Content Engineering.”
In this segment, Porter will introduce the seven distinct disciplines of content engineering. These disciplines embody the skills and strategies content engineers use to bridge the divide between content strategists, producers, developers, and managers who publish and distribute digital content. Audiences will learn how content engineers help define and facilitate content structure during the entire content strategy, production, and distribution cycle.
Also in this workshop, Alyssa Fox
will discuss “The Content Strategy Imperative”, and Paul Mueller
will cover “Content Across the Enterprise.” Together, audiences will get a high-level overview of how to plan and execute a well-designed content ecosystem that delivers the most relevant content to an organization's readers when and where they need it most.
Other sessions at this mini-conference include:
