Welcome to the Write the Docs Community

Write the Docs is a series of conferences and local meetups focused on all things related to software documentation.

We consider everyone who cares about communication, documentation, and their users to be a member of our community. This can be programmers, tech writers, customer support, marketers, and anyone else who wants people to have great experiences with software.

Our conferences create a time and a place for the global community of Documentarians to share information, discuss ideas, and work together to improve the art and science of documentation.

2016 Conferences


Write the Docs wouldn’t be possible without our wonderful Team of volunteers. We are always looking for folks who want to take a stronger leadership role in our community. Feel free to reach out if you’re interested in helping on a conference, or in our community in general.

Mailing Lists

We have mailing lists for our North American and European Conferences. They are low traffic, and only send information about the conferences and Write the Docs events in those areas.

North America



We have meetups in multiple cities every month. The Meetups page has more information.


Check out our Forum to keep in touch with your fellow documentarians.

The forum is the place to start discussions that we should keep around for a while. If a Slack conversation starts to get a lot of attention and seems like something of permanent interest, we suggest that you move it over to the forum.


You can join us on Slack to have real-time discussion and keep in touch with folks.

Slack conversations aren’t archived, so we recommend either putting substantial items of interest on the forum, or moving them there if they develop into something bigger.
