Webinar: Implementing the ISO Standard for Software Technical Documentation in Your Workplace

For the first time, international standards from the International Standards Organization (ISO) provide unified requirements for those who design, develop, review, or test user documentation. These standards, largely developed by STC members, give a common framework for the structure, content, and format of user documentation in any media. Learn how you can effectively apply user documentation standards in both large and small organizations. This webinar is presented by the co-editors of ISO/IEC 26514:2008, Systems and software engineering —Requirements for designers and developers of user documentation.
