Topic: "Discount Usability Techniques for Documentation"
About the Event
Usability professionals often throw about phrases like "paper prototyping," "usability test," and "heuristic evaluation." Usually, though, they are talking about software and its user interface. How do these techniques apply to documentation? Scott McDaniel will talk about usability techniques as they apply specifically to online and printed documentation. He will also discuss ways to build usability into your documentation process and ways to separate documentation testing from software testing.
Don't forget your business cards for networking! We collect a business card from each attendee for a chance to win the registration fee for the Annual conference. The drawing takes place at the March meeting. The more meetings you attend, the more chances to win.
