Our Conferences and Seminars

HyperWrite, in conjunction with WritersUA, hosted the Australasian Online Documentation and Content Conference (AODC) annually from 1998 to 2010.

We encourage Australian and New Zealander Help authors and technical communicators to join an "expedition" to the WritersUA West Conference.

Coming Up:

WritersUA West, Silicon Valley, 14-15 April 2016

The WritersUA West Conference in 2016 will be held at the Computer History Museum in Silicon Valley, California. An aggressive agenda of UA intensity is planned, with two separate sequences of UA-specific learning: for design and writing and for tools and technologies. A dozen expert presenters will share their knowledge in this collegial gathering of software user assistance professionals. The conference runs from 14 to 15 April 2016.

International Interest

HyperWrite's work has often attracted international interest. HyperWrite's Tony Self has been presenting talks at the major WinWriters conference in Seattle for many years. An interesting Australian Unity case study was the topic for the 1998 session. More recently, Tony has presented topics including DITA for Help and Responsive Web Design.

When presenting talks outside Australia, HyperWrite's Tony Self tries to share a bit of the "lucky country" with the rest of the world. This sharing sometimes involves handing out samples of Vegemite to often unwilling participants!
