We are collaborating with The Pragmatic Bookshelf to bring you a codebar first - a panel featuring authors and editors answering all your questions on technical writing.
To bring about the brightest future, we need to hear from everyone. We need to hear from you. Join five tech industry veterans in this exploration of the relationship between doing and writing about tech, and learn why the future depends on you.
