Many of you know that I've been presenting sessions
on object technology and creating API docs at STC
conferences for several years. Although these sessions
are still well-received, I'm ready to present some new
material. Then too, these sessions are both introductory
in scope and conference attendees are always asking me
to prepare some more advanced topics.

But I'm stumped. Idunno why. I guess the way I look at
things, you learn the basic techniques and then work at
increasing your knowledge of the subject matter and the
target audience. To me, it isn't tools or techniques,
but learning more about the subject and the audience
that _is_ the more advanced part of tech writing.

Obviously, I'm missing something. %-) Not the
first time such a phenomenon has occurred! <g>

So, those of you who've done API docs for a while now,
what interests you? What do you consider "advanced"
API topics. If you were attending next year's STC
conference, what would draw you in???

Thanks for your input!
