News
Upcoming Meeting

If you have ever wanted to break into the specialty market of documenting APIs and SDKs, don't miss STC-Boston's January program as Ed Marshall presents "APIs and SDKs: Breaking Into and Succeeding in a Specialty Market" on Wednesday, January 19 at 5:45 at the Lexington Sheraton. You will learn what APIs and SDKs are, which skills you need to document them, and you'll hear about some tools commonly used to document APIs and SDKs. For more information, visit STC-Boston's program page.

Upcoming SIG Meeting

On January 12, the Technical Editing special interest group will meet to consider how editing can be evaluated in quantifiable, "bottom-line" terms to assist with self-marketing or to demonstrate the value of a dedicated editing function in an organization. Participants are invited to bring helpful resources (documents and/or citations), metrics, and experiences related to this question to share, with the goals of strengthening our self-marketing materials and examining our work (including estimating and pricing) in the context of possibly broader career opportunities than we may have considered. Please visit the TE SIG page for registration and details.
