Event Details

Presenter: Emma Hughes - Technical writer at Lavastorm 

Presenter: Emma Hughes Emma fell into technical writing after starting work as a translation coordinator for Siemens Healthcare 6 years ago, and she now works as a technical writer at Lavastorm Analytics in Warrington.

In this talk, Emma describes how she switched from legacy documents in Word to using Flare, integrating HTML help and the tools she used to achieve this in an agile environment. Emma will discuss some of the challenges that she faced along the way and how she overcame them, including:

  • Balancing her time between processing legacy documentation and keeping up with new developments.
  • 2-week sprints where docs are not part of the definition of done, but unofficial agreement on keeping the docs up-to-date.
