Our first Write The Docs PDX Meetup features Marcia Riefer Johnson, author of "Word Up! How to Write Powerful Sentences and Paragraphs (And Everything You Build from Them)."

She spoke at the first Write The Docs conference in 2013, helping us all “Write Tight(er)” http://conf.writethedocs.org/na/2013/video.html#marcia-riefer-johnston Marcia has shared the following description:

Documentarians who heard me at Write the Docs last year or this year know that I talk about be-verbs. For our Meetup, I'd like to do more than talk—I'd like to give attendees a chance to take action. I would like everyone to bring in an example that shows the kind of documentation they do. They don't have to, but if they do, they'll get more out of the exercise for themselves AND they'll help the rest of the group by providing me with material that attendees can relate to. Besides, I think that attendees would benefit from seeing examples of what others in the room mean by "documentation."

The Write The Docs PDX Meetup Group is sponsored by ForgeRock and Puppet Labs.
