Comments from Previous Attendees
I heard about LavaCon from [a colleague], with whom I work. She raves
about this conference, and because I am the project manager for most of my
company's technical documentation projects, I felt this conference would be
a great benefit to my ongoing education.
I have always envied her attending
this conference, but I could not attend until now. I look forward to the brochure,
the e-news, and, of course, the conference in October!
B.G. Project Manager
The balance of concrete solutions presented in some sessions and problem-solving in others made for an excellent learning experience.
J.H., Business Owner
Thanks for putting on such a great conference. I learned a great deal. It was helpful to attend a conference for senior [developers] and managers.
B.C., Sr. Developer
LavaCon was professionally transformative for me. The information that I gleaned and the contacts that I made at LavaCon helped me to take some important steps forward with my work.
P.E., Business Owner
I have attended and presented at various conferences over the years. Some offer classes that are too basic or general. Some focus only on specific technical areas. I spend my training budget on the LavaCon conference because I think it is the best value for my staff. The agenda offers an excellent variety of sessions—so many choices that often it is difficult to choose which to attend! I like sending my staff to LavaCon because there are more advanced topics than [other conferences].
K.S., Manager - Technical Communication
If you have senior staff or are in techcomm management, this is a good conference, partly because the topics are geared toward decision makers: strategists, management, and so on, and because it co-locates with [a local chapter of] the Project Management Institute, which gives people the opportunity to branch out and think of their profession in different ways.
