ABOUT THE PRESENTATION

Eric will describe how to approach a huge software project that has failed twice already, is full of political and organizational obstacles, has almost thirty distinct audiences, and tens of thousands of current and not-so-current pieces of content...(and oh, by the way, we don't know where some of them are...). We'll discuss the successful business and audience analysis and launch of this site: http://www.uaex.edu/ 

 

ABOUT THE PRESENTER

Eric Hughes began his career in technology as a technical trainer at Lockheed Martin in Sunnyvale. He then moved to Charles Schwab to design voice and data networks. In the early 1990's, he emigrated to Wells Fargo to design the largest internal TCP/IP network in the U.S. As the web matured, he headed up an effort to develop & use intranet applications for bank-wide business and communications. From 1998 through 2014, he managed Simplexity, an Oakland-based web application development firm. 

Eric launched a new business called Matriculus in late 2014 - it specializes in PeopleSoft integration and the architecture, coding, and deployment of large online graduate school applications (UC Berkeley and UC Santa Cruz are current clients).

That's very nice, but we have our own local competition, Touchstone, which is jointly sponsored by the 6 northern California chapters, including San Francisco. Why don't you encourage local technical communicators to enter Touchstone? The www.stc-touchstone.org website has not yet been updated for this year, but our deadline for entries is Saturday, Oct 5th. I hope local tech communicators will send us their entries. If you want to be a judge in this year's competition, please send email to xrmxrm@gmail.com, and I'll explain the process. Touchstone accepts entries from anywhere, but we encourage potential entrants to enter their own local competition instead if they have one. We would not publicize Touchstone in the Chicago group, and I for one don't appreciate their publicizing their competition here.
