August 25, 2014 Meeting – API Technical Writing: What, Why, and How

Have you ever wondered what API technical writers do, and how they go about it? Perhaps you’d like to move into developer-focused documentation
yourself, and need some tips on getting started.

Join us to discuss what an API is and explore some easy-to-use APIs that you can play with later yourself. Examine examples of API documentation, pick up a few useful tools, and grab some ideas on getting started in this field. It’s an exciting and rewarding area of technical communication.
