Write the Docs August 2019 End of Summer Social
Laughing Planet

Hello Documentarians!

For the month of August, we're having a low-key, good old fashioned informal social. We're going to meet at Laughing Planet in NW Portland (very close to Beaverton), grab a table, and share our experiences as documentarians.

We've heard your survey feedback about your venue and date preferences, and we're going to try having community meetups in a variety of settings. For the month of August, we're going to meet in the westside--closer to Beaverton and Hillsboro.

Write the Docs September 2019: Lean Coffee
Jama Software

Hello Portland (Oregon)-area documentarians! For September, we're going to have a Lean Coffee meetup (9/18 at Jama Software). Based on http://agilecoffee.com/leancoffee/, we'll leave the discussion up to you. As noted on the site, “Lean Coffee is a structured, but agenda-less meeting. Participants gather, build an agenda, and begin talking. Conversations are directed and productive because the agenda for the meeting was democratically generated.”

New to Lean Coffee? It's a great way to have real, focused dialogue and we often discuss matters of docs, agile, lean, and such - but anything goes.

Mob the Docs! A radical exercise in collaboration during a time of separation
Online

Joint Meetup with the Agile Mob Programming Workshop and Write the Docs

Mob programming is a collaborative way to leverage the strength of the collective developers to solve problems and produce code with results that can be greater than the work of the individual participants alone. But can mobbing work for tech writers? Join us in this social experiment to apply mob programming principles to writing documentation.

Mobbing works on the constraints created by the group. For this joint meetup, participants will be 100% remote.To join the meetup, please RSVP at Meetup link, and we’ll post a meeting link here on the day of the event.

As a group, we will be presented with a writing challenge. With these constraints, and any further agreements we make, we’ll use collaborative online tools to explore the benefits and challenges of docs mobbing.
