Writing Mobile Documentation: Rewrite or Cut

Dojo 2013-03-10 Mobile

This session had a lot of votes, so we found Neil Perlin, master of mobile, and found a time when he can come talk!

So you’ve just been told to create a mobile version of your product’s help system… Can we revise content written for a large screen to fit on an iPhone screen? Can we cut it? Is there a point at which the two options are effectively the same? In either case, how do we decide what to give up? Can that “lost” material be made available somewhere? In this presentation, we’ll discuss these issues and look at a real example, a very early multimedia presentation about US history in which the presenter boiled 70 pages of content down to a few dozen paragraphs and decide whether it worked.
