Matthew Ellison will be giving a presentation at TCUK19 entitled “Top Tech Comms Technology Trends from the Past 10 Years”
The past decade has seen many technology changes that have significantly impacted our work as Technical Communicators – not least the explosion in use of mobile devices that were almost unheard of 10 years ago. This presentation examines the trends, and picks out some key changes that Technical Communicators should be most aware of. These include responsive Design, micro content, open source development tools, and cloud-based authoring.
