No one in fact wants to Read The Fine Manual. Adding a user should not require a manual and developers insist they don't need one. This puts the burden on the web and desktop UI designer who must be extremely communicative with only a handful of words.

This talk will walk you through lessons learned writing Microcopy in applications of all sizes.

As a senior technical writer for ForgeRock, Mike Jang spends much of his time documenting how deployers can modify JavaScript to customize web applications. He has also written a couple dozen technical books, mostly focused on Linux certification, and is the author of O’Reilly’s Linux Annoyances for Geeks.

Many will head to the Lucky Lab at 1945 NW Quimby St. after the meeting.

Rideshares to the Lucky Lab available
