It’s April already. The rain falls. New Year’s resolutions forgotten (well, mine are anyway). And as the year progresses, I find myself staring wistfully out the window over a grey Seattle, wishing there were some content strategy conference I could attend in another overcast city in a faraway land…
Hey, what luck! It’s almost time for LavaCon! It’ll kick off on May 22 and run through the 24th. Best part? It’s in Dublin, Ireland, so there will be no shortage of delicious beers and engaging conversation. And even if you can’t hop in a plane, train, or car and find your way to the Emerald Isle, LavaCon offers virtual attendance opportunities.
For those not familiar, LavaCon is a content strategy and technical communication management conference. Gathered there are content strategists (duh), UX designers, documentation managers, and lots of other folks who work with content (or wish to).
Here’s a quick look at some of this year’s talk topics:
- Structured content authoring
- Large-scale content management
- Cross-silo governance
- The intersection of content strategy and user experience design
- Content as product
- Design thinking
Take a look at their schedule to get a better sense of what’s on offer this year.
