Cambridge Group – Heritage Weekend visits

In case you have not seen it there are a couple of events for Heritage Weekend that may interest ISTC folk. For full details and booking of the following and all other events (there are lots) go to www.cam.ac.uk/opencambridge

University Library

You may remember (with affection I hope!) the tour we had of the University Library. If you want to go again or missed our tour you can go on Friday 13th Sept or on Saturday 14th. You must book at www.cam.ac.uk/opencambridge. Three tours on each day.

Cambridge University Press Museum

Available on Friday 13th only. Includes an exhibition of book, printing presses and type founding. There is also an associated lecture.

Cambridge Group – Document Hackathon

Bring along your documents for peer critique. What happens is this…

You bring along one of your documents and let the others critique it. As you’ll already know the more eye balls you have look at something the better it gets. And what can be better eye-balls are there than other Technical Communicators!

The comments must be positive and constructive to enhance the learning experience and if possible backed up by examples and experience, NO FLAMING allowed! (not that you would of course).

This event was scheduled for earlier on in the year and has been moved to this new date.

Meet at CB2 Bistro at 19:00. Full details on EvenBrite.

All are welcome. Please book on EventBrite.

Cambridge Group – Organiser wanted

We were planning a Document Hackathon on the 19th June. However we didn’t get an organiser to come forward, so I’ve decided postpone the event to later in the year.  However if you are still interested in helping with the organisation of events please get in touch at Cambridge_areagroup@istc.org.uk.

Cambridge Group – Style Guide Clinic – 21st May

Bring along your Style Guide for others to see.

What are they for? What should they contain? What should they not contain? We will tackle these and many more questions about Style Guides.

To get you started read Daniel Heuman’s website, you can meet and talk to Daniel at the Clinic because he is our guest speaker.

Hosted by Samsung Cambridge.

Full details on EventBrite. If you are contributing a style guide (we hope you are) please make sure you get a “I’m bringing mine ticket”.
