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.

2017 Conferences

  • Write the Docs Portland, May 14-16, Portland, Oregon
  • Write the Docs Europe, Fall 2017

Look at all of these happy people at our Portland conference in 2016!



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 List

We have mailing lists for our Monthly Newsletter, North American Conferences, and European Conferences. They are low traffic, and only send occasional community and event updates.

You can sign up in our sidebar.


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


You can join us on the Slack for real-time discussion and to keep in touch with folks from the community.

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.

Learn more about our Slack.


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.
