The LavaCon Content Strategy Conference | 27–30 October 2024 | Portland, OR
Jang Graat

Jang studied Physics, Psychology and Philosophy before embarking on a fast-track career in the international high-performance computer domain, starting his own company in 1994. After writing manuals and delivering training courses for a decade, he taught himself programming. He is sometimes known as the Geek Philosopher and his solutions show radically new approaches to problems that have suffered from conservatism and lack of imagination.

Bringing content review into the 21st century

While content creation has evolved into an advanced ecosystem spanning silos and technologies, content review is still done by tracked changes – a technique that was old and inadequate even when it was just introduced. A radically new approach to content review is required to make sure the right subject matter experts have checked the right part of the content that is being published.
This presentation shows a radically new web-based approach to content review, allowing concurrent reviewing of content even when that consists of many small components, each of which may appear in many different publications. It is time for reviewlution.

In this session attendees will learn:

  • Why content review should not be done on source documents.
  • Why context is important in the review process.
  • How web-based reviewing allows any subject matter expert to chime in.
  • Which free extras become available with this new approach.
