STC Summit 2014

Posted on: June 10th, 2014

WebWorks is an Austin-based company. We have been here for over 20 years. I am a native Texan. I have lived here all my life. I was in Dallas during the heat wave of 1980—a 42-day string of high temperatures over 100 degrees. You could literally fry an egg on the sidewalk for breakfast. So […]

WebWorks at CMS/DITA North America 2014

Posted on: May 9th, 2014

DITA North America this year was held in the sunny city of Seattle. Now I know that sounds a little funny at first, especially if you are familiar with Seattle, but the weather was fantastic. I had been to Seattle once before to visit Boeing. If you have never been, you can see when first […]

2013 STC Summit Questions and Answers

Recapping the 2012 Vasont Users’ Group

Posted on: October 2nd, 2012

Flew into Harrisburg, PA. on my way to the Vasont Users’ Group. One of my most favorite things about flying into this meet-up is the size of the planes going into this conference. I truly believe I’ve been in larger restrooms, but hey, it makes for an adventure. Outside of feeling every little bump the […]

The Tech Pubs Social, WebWorks monthly luncheon meet-up of local Austin technical communication professionals, is an informal gathering focused on discussing current industry trends and technologies.
