My articles from LavaCon are slowly being posted online at TechWhirl’s LavaCon Conferences Page. I am working through plenty of typed and handwritten notes, and audio recordings. So far I have plenty of articles to write about and I believe there will be some article ideas that will come out of my attendance from this year’s LavaCon.
I am extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to attend LavaCon 2011 in Austin, TX and I also have a unique position of covering the conference from the perspective of a new professional in the field of technical communication. Currently there is so much that this conference offers that I will have various topics to write about long after the presentations are over.
Here is a brief overview of what I will cover at LavaCon for the great folks at TechWhirl.com
Summaries of presentations attended with key points
Feature article from the perspective of a new technical communicator
I also will post live on Twitter from the event. If you read my Twitter stream, you can see where I will be at for the most part. You might find yourself famous through my blogging! You can also find me via Facebook and Google+. Some content will be cross-posted on those sites too.
In addition, most of my blog posts here at LavaCon will reference directly to TechWhirl. While I am at the conference, my interviews, summaries, and feature articles will be published on their site, however I will have a quick summary with a reference link. For the next six days, I will post related information about the LavaCon conference, such as the BBQ Crawl, after-session events, and my personal thoughts.
Thank you to everyone who supported me to attend LavaCon on Facebook, I greatly appreciate your help! As part of your support, my job while at LavaCon is to live blog and write some articles for the folks over at TechWhirl.
Tech–what? TechWhirl, formerly and popularly known as Techwr-L, is an online magazine and discussion group for technical communicators. It originally began as an email discussion group in 1993. You can read more about them and their history.
What does this mean for you and me? Great content for the TechWhirl website which promotes everyone involved with LavaCon. I’ve done blogging before and this will be a fantastic opportunity for everyone to see my networking, interviewing, and article writing skills in action. I look forward to writing about this conference.
I’ll post one or two more articles here at WriteTechie before I run off to LavaCon and I will post a recap of my attendance with links to articles on the TechWhirl website. You are more than welcome to contact me and offer feedback while I’m out and about at the conference. I wish to make it interactive as well as informative.
