Media Magic: The Journey of a News Article
Limited Capacity seats available

Workshop issue​​​

We have all read some flattering and unflattering articles about the company we work for in the news, or maybe you read an article that listed inaccurate features in a release of an open source technology you contribute to. How did the journalists writing these articles gain this information and what drove them to write about it? In this session, we will discuss the journey an article goes through, from how the PR team works with different departments internally to brainstorm and develop a pitch idea, reaching out to a journalist with that idea and securing their interest, conducting interviews, and the publishing process of the article. Examples will include recently published GitLab articles and anecdotes from working on the Kubernetes release team. Attendees will also learn tips and tricks for speaking to media as a spokesperson, and how to work with GitLab's PR team.

Documentation: basics and tips that make it easier
Limited Capacity seats available

Workshop issue

While GitLab has a growing technical writing team, the first drafts of docs are usually created by our wonderful engineers. Some engineers enjoy writing docs, some are nervous about it, some find it a chore, and some even hate it (and that's ok!). I (We?) will go over some basics (many of which are in our documentation guides, but are good to review), as well as give tips and recommendations. I hope this helps everyone be more comfortable with writing out the docs (or at least hate writing docs less). If time allows, I will also give a brief overview of how the docs go from markdown in the gitlab repo, to html on docs.gitlab.com.
  • Intended Audience: Engineers that work on features, and thus have to document how to use those features, as well as Support team members, and anyone else that wants to contribute improvements to our documentation.
  • Presentation, with some group discussion.
