Authoring in an agile world

W2U is proud to announce Ellis Pratt as a speaker at the W2U Conference 2017

However, the methodology doesn’t explain the best way to create Help content for users. In this presentation, we’ll look at how authoring teams have responded to this challenge, and have developed agile approaches to technical writing.
