Speaking Their Language: How to Write for Technical and Non-Technical Audiences - Rikki Endsley, Red Hat

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Open source communities are made up of individuals with a range of experience and expertise, so how do you write for the different audiences? Sure, you're comfortable shooting sentences over IRC or knocking out a note to your mailing list. But what about reporting your team's progress to a non-technical manager, or explaining your product to non-technical end users?

Find out how to:
* Define your audience(s)
* Outline your idea
* Decide what information to include and terms to define
* Repurpose content for multiple audiences
* Streamline the writing process
