February 2024

Kia ora koutou katoa,

Welcome back to the TechCommWire – we hope you’ve all had a refreshing break.

It's a short newsletter this time, for us to say hello and share some information about the things that are top of mind this year: TechCommNZ conference, the Plain Language Awards, and our shared communication journal with our partner organisations.

From the President

To start off 2024, Ryan announces the TechCommNZ conference, and encourages you to start getting ready for this year's Plain Language Awards. We have other great opportunities for you to get more involved with TechCommNZ too.


Let's tech communicate

A list of articles, tools and links that we hope you'll find useful in your daily mahi as a technical communicator.

On the radar this month: formatting long-form content, usability heuristics, why one company isn't adding AI to their product, 2024 technical writing trends, challenges for technical writers, and Lucid product resources.
