Chapter Meetings

Wednesday April 19, 2017:

STC-SF hosts Mysti Berry on “Writing for Developers (When You Aren’t One)”.

ABOUT THE PRESENTATION

Do you have to be a software developer to write developer documentation? This presentation explains how and why that isn’t necessarily true. We’ll also look at all the great ways there are for writers to pair up with developers to deliver documentation that delights all the people, developer and otherwise, who consume platform documentation, and we’ll leave plenty of time for the audience to share their own experiences and ask questions.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER

Mysti Berry is a Principal Technical Writer for Okta, Inc., a software company that specializes in Identity-as-a-Service. She has been writing technical documentation for mostly enterprise software companies for over 25 years, and has specialized in platform documentation (developer docs!) for over twelve years. She can write Hello World in Java with the tutorial, but has never been an actual software engineer.

RSVP on Meetup

Please RSVP on our Meetup page. This helps us plan for snacks and room space.

Meetings are now free to attend for everyone. If you would like to contribute to the chapter to help us continue providing free meetings, there’s a Chip In button on our Meetup page.


Date and Time

Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month, except November and December.

6:00 PM: Networking

7:00 PM: Chapter Announcements and Topic Presentation

Please arrive before 7:00 PM while someone is present at the entrance to let you in. Due to security restrictions, the doors can only be opened by Salesforce employees. If someone is not present at the entrance, please be patient. You can also email info@stc-sf.org to alert those inside the meeting or if you will be later than the presentation start time.


Location

Meetings are held in the Salesforce office at 121 Spear St. in the Rincon Center complex bounded by Mission, Howard, Spear, and Steuart Streets.

Location of STC-SF meetings in Rincon Center

The entrance to the chapter meetings is near Rincon food court entry doors facing the plaza (not the entry doors on Mission Street). Look for the Salesforce lobby with two bright blue chairs in the corner.


Parking

Use either the Howard Street Garage (located between Spear and Steuart) or the garage under the Rincon Center (located on Spear between Mission and Howard). The Rincon Center underground parking garage elevator will take you to the ground floor, on the same side of the building as the entrance to the meeting center.

NOTE that the Howard Street Garage’s rates are lower at night than during the day.


Public Transportation

You can take either BART or MUNI and exit at the Embarcadero Station.

To get to the Rincon Center from there:

Turn right and walk down Spear Street, about half-way down the block. Cross the street and enter the plaza about half-way down Spear Street (on the east side of Spear Street). Walk up the steps, and when you see the Dolphin fountain, look left, you’ll see the entrance.
