The theme of SpeedCon 2019 is diversification. Technical communication is found in a multitude of fields, ranging from medicine to finance to all types of engineering – mechanical, electrical, software, and more. If a field is at all technical, you can bet there’s technical communication involved.
Newer fields and special interests such as user experience and information architecture also rely on technical communicators’ skills.
While it is inevitable that technical communicators will specialize in an area, we must never stop learning from our peers in other disciplines. Whether you’re a content developer, communication specialist, documentation project manger, information architect, or technical writer, we’re in this together.
The profession of “technical communicator,” including all its variants, is still emerging and solidifying its presence, demanding recognition and respect.
So let’s learn from each other, share our experiences and skills, and prove how invaluable technical communication is in all its forms.
