Christchurch Workshop - FastThink: Creating Sustainable Content

Christchurch Workshop - FastThink: Creating Sustainable Content

As writers, most of our effort focuses, and rightfully so, on the user. But in creating content, we also need to consider those who must later maintain that content -- our future selves! This session presents some simple and effective ways to create content that is not only useful today, but can be updated later without a major hassle. We'll look at several high- and low-level sustainability techniques you can use that future-you will thank present-you for learning!
