Re: FOSS4G Presentation submission deadline - want to present a "Docs" talk?

Cameron Shorter

Byron, Andrew, Johanna, others,

Is any of you involved in OSGeo's Season of Docs or TheGoodDocsProject going to attend FOSS4G in Wellington, New Zealand? If so, would you be interested in presenting about "The state of play in OSGeo docs"?

Docs is important for all OSGeo projects, and is a hard thing to address.

It is also something that we have made a lot of progress on this year, with Google Season of Docs being a catalyst.

I won't be able to attend FOSS4G. (Ironically, I'll be presenting at the WriteTheDocs conference which is on the same week).

However I'd be happy to help build a presentation if someone is prepared to present it.

Re: FOSS4G Presentation submission deadline - want to present a "Docs" talk?

Cameron Shorter

Byron, nice to chat today.

Some suggestions for your abstract:


Title: TheGoodDocsProject

 

* Docs for Open Source projects has received a boost of attention this year.

* Google has launched a Season of Docs initiative to bring together open source and tech writer communities. OSGeo has had two senior tech writers allocated to us.

* A spin-off SeasonOfDocsProject has kicked off, being driven by a bunch of senior tech writers and some OSGeo folks. It is building writing templates and writing instructions for open source projects.

* And there have been new blood and revitalisation of doc activities in QGIS, GeoNetwork and OSGeoLive projects.

 

In this presentation we will summarise what has been happening in these initiatives, and provide guidance on how use the expertise of these communities in your project.
