TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Of the two options in the article -- IEEE's Computer Society vs. ACM --
which do you think would be a better fit for technical writing? I know
that IEEE has a Professional Communication Society, but access to the
"element k" courses seems to be only for the IEEE Computer Society. I
don't know if the list of courses is the same for both options. I was
able to see in the IEEE Computer Society website that there are some
FrameMaker courses and Adobe Captivate, but nothing on DITA, single
sourcing, help authoring, RoboHelp, Flare, etc...
Any thoughts anyone? Does anyone here belong to ACM (instead of STC),
and if so, which SIG did you join?
