The CoMoDAY is planned by TheContentMotorist, with the objective to bring together regional technical writers to network and exchange ideas and knowledge. Professional groups, bodies and organizations all over the world plan conferences and summits for UI, UX, Usability, Technical Writing, Content Management, and these are often a huge success. Such events span across 2-3 days with parallel tracks for speakers who speak on a variety of topics.

However, every such beginning starts small, and so Vinish Garg has planned for this event in Chandigarh.


14 September 2013. Mark your calendar! The call for proposals for the event is open now. You are welcome to present on different aspects of technical documentation such as for documentation best practices, information architecture, authoring software, the documentation project planning, or anything else. The detailed and final agenda will be added here after the papers are shortlisted. The proposed program is as below.

Why you should attend it


The drivers often felt uneasy, tied-down or even stranded when seat belts were first introduced in India in the 1990s. As if deprived of freedom to move. Gradually, the benefits were there to see and now the ‘seat-belt’ is a way of life while driving. DITA too raises somewhat similar apprehensions. As if it binds our hands. Nisha and Akansha from Ericsson talk about it on 14 September, in Chandigarh.


Traditionally, not many technical writers are good at balance sheets... but not many can overlook the importance of analytics and metrics either. Shena explains it why and how. At 11:45 AM, 14 September 2013, Chandigarh.


No writer writes an instruction for a manager and no manager reviews it for an employee. We are all entrepreneurs of our work. And every entrepreneurship journey is punctuated with community participation, knowledge sharing meets, and networking. The clean and wide Chandigarh roads welcome you to this journey. September 14.
