For the past 20 years, our field was in a transition from traditional technical manuals to various types of content deployed to the Web. Now that we find ourselves in a new environment, how can we manage digital content as effectively as possible? Come for a good discussion of what our field has been through and share your thoughts about where we're headed. 

Every tech pubs shop is different, and every project is different. In the digital publication model, we can still identify elements or practices common to all projects, and to all successful shops. 

Steven Greffenius will share war stories on the successes and pitfalls of the transition from the traditional technical publication model to digital publication for the Web. He will draw lessons from those on how to move forward.

*Food will be provided at the event* 

Registration closes on Monday, November 28th. If you would like to attend after registration closes, please email Paul Duarte, Vice President, at paulduarte@stcnewengland.org
