Atlassian Doc Sprint Online 2010

This weekend I took part in Doc Sprint 2010 – the first crowdsourcing event hold by Atlassian. The event goal was preparing a quick guide on one of the Atlassian’s products – JIRA, Confluence, Bamboo or other.

It was very fun to join atlassians and other participants by San Francisco time, which is equal to MSK-10 h (by November, 5). As an alternative was Sydney’s time, which was not much better – MSK+10 h (or so).

I read about the event from Sarah Maddox’ blog. She is one of lead tech writers at Atlassian, she also was one of the organizers of sprint.

I was one of the remote sprint participants. Atlassians engaged us to plan sprinting a month or two before the event. Each sprinter added preferred themes to a special Wish list page and then chose one theme discussed with atlassians to write a guide on it.

We started at November,4 from a kick-off webinar and short introduction of participants. We used GoToMeeting and I liked the service.

Finally, I prepared a topic ‘Confluence Plugins for Technical Writers’, which is available here.

After the event we shared retrospectives, Atlassians also published our photos on Flickr.

As for me – this sprint was a chance to live communicate with atlassians, to go deep in their products and good documentation style.

Thanks all!

I’m on SECR 2010!

This year I’m attending and speaking at the Software Engineering Conference taking place in Moscow, Russia.

The event is awesome. The key persons of the industry traditionally visit the event. Grady Booch, Ivar Jacobson, Lars Bak, Yuri Gurevich, Steve Masters are among the key speakers of the last years.

This time Bjarne Stroustrup comes to visit us at SECR (his program is here).

I’m looking forward to meet the icon!

My paper on ‘Supporting SaaS in Documentation Systems’ is submitted to the conference program. Yeah!

Now it’s time to prepare a presentation.
