Most people know Geoffrey Chaucer as the author of The Canterbury Tales, a group of stories so naughty that schoolbooks still censor them now, over 600 years later. Many are surprised to learn that Geoffrey Chaucer also wrote one of the oldest surviving technical documents written in the English language.
More surprising still is the fact that this document, A Treatise on the Astrolabe, remains an example of excellent technical writing even by today’s standards. An astrolabe is an ancient instrument that helped astronomers study the stars, surveyors study the land, and sailors study the sea. In this session we’ll use Chaucer and his astrolabe to study the timeless elements of great technical communication.
Attendees will view advanced writing and editing skills through an ancient lens and emerge ready to produce concrete, concise, and cutting-edge documentation that’s just right for their audience.
