On a pleasant Saturday morning of 15th July 2017, STC India Chennai organized a coffee table discussion at Café Coffee Day, at 11th Avenue, Ashok Nagar.

The participants consisted of corporate veterans, experienced freelancers, and budding technical writers.

The open-ended discussion centered around the emerging topics in the industry and how STC can organize seminars for upskilling the writers in the community.

The discussion also included writing for emerging topics, such as Single Source Authoring, DITA, Topic-based Authoring, Virtual Labs, Gamification, Artificial Intelligence (AI), HTML5, Video-based Learning, DevOps, and Structured v/s Unstructured Authoring.

Blue Dots Consultancy Services sponsored the refreshments. Their willingness to sponsor all STC India Chennai chapter events is worth appreciation.


The participants left the venue with enough food for thought and with the assurance that STC India will help shape the future and enrich the learning.
