Request for Write Ups


#1

Hey all,

I just wanted to put this out there, but it would be great if you could write up on your blog about your experience at the conference this year.

I know a lot of folks often ask how they can help with the event. Spreading the word, and letting folks know about it is one of the biggest things you can do. I am always curious of what in particular people thought was insightful, interesting, or awful about the event. The survey helps in some ways, but a fuller write up is often useful in helping people really get what Write the Docs was.

So, this thread can act as a place to put one’s we find around the internet, and hopefully spur you into writing one yourself :slight_smile:

David,

Thanks for the write-up, and congrats on the state of your Seattle WTD Meetup Group. It’s only been 6 weeks, and you already have nearly 80 members. Wow!

@ericholscher should write-ups of the EU event also be posted here or somewhere else? :slight_smile:

Sure, either way! Feel free to post a new topic, or continue here. :slight_smile:
