How Agile Takes the "Technical" Out of Technical Communication

Kai Weber

Abstract

This webinar takes a fresh look at the user documentation in agile software development. Not so much the theory, but the messy realities and how to survive them, sprint by sprint. After working with agile teams and agile writers for several years, Kai Weber shares lessons learned the hard way: How agile changes the way you work. And how it changes the way you communicate to your readers, to your teams, and to your colleagues.
