    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.

    Write The Docs PDX January Meetup: Conference Submission Workshop

    Jama Software

    Our January meetup (1/8/19, 6-8 pm at Jama Software) is an opportunity for members to share potential ideas for the Write the Docs Portland 2019 (May 19-21). Participants are encouraged to give short (~5 minutes) dry runs of potential presentations to gauge interest and collect feedback. Do you have a burning idea that you want to present at the conference? Here is your chance to share them. We'll also brainstorm topics that attendees would "love to see at the conference that they wish someone would offer."

    If you have a talk in mind, please RSVP and let the organizers (Mo, Kristen McKee, and Mike Jang) know in advance. We would love to have several speakers share their proposals.

    With Call for Proposals for the Write the Docs Portland 2019 conference quickly approaching (midnight, January 17th), this is a great opportunity to practice your talk and receive feedback. For what it's worth, several past participants of the Conference Submission Workshop were selected to present at Write the Docs.

    We look forward to seeing you and hearing your ideas on January 8th!

    Write the Docs Portland December Meetup: Minimum Viable Documentation for RESTful APIs

    Jama Software

    Our December meetup features a presentation by Mike Jang (Senior Staff Technical Writer at ForgeRock), as well as several very important announcements for the community. You don't want to miss this!

    Here's a teaser for Mike's presentation, "Minimum Viable Documentation for RESTful APIs":

    To paraphrase a James Bond movie, "Swagger is not enough..."

    ...You've done the work to set up OpenAPI specification REST calls for your APIs (Inaccurately known as "Swagger"). You have reference information. But you discover that few users are actually trying REST calls on your system. You're wondering: "What else do I need?"

    This presentation will describe the Minimal Viable Documentation (MVD) for RESTful APIs, also known as "What do I need for my developer portal?"

    Based loosely on Kristof Van Tomme's presentations on Developer Experience, Mike will describe the MVD for a developer portal, what will help your developers try out your APIs.
