Hello, Folks:

I searched the archives and have not found any recent conversations on this
topic. If it has already been discussed, I would appreciate being pointed
towards the thread.

I am teaching Tools for Technical Writers this semester. My students will
be writing reports on leading and bleeding edge technologies technical
writers used to CREATE publications and documentation. Unfortunately, I
only have the old standards (Adobe, Microsoft, etc.) to use in class.
However, I can make them aware of what they might be facing when they leave
school. Also, I do teach them what I call "technological adaptability": how
to learn new technologies and software packages quickly.

Since this list is the best place I know for such information, right now --
Jan 2016, in your company and your area, what software are you using to
create your documentation? Are you exploring any new publication software
or technologies? Do you see some significant changes coming in the
relatively near future?

Thanks for any input!
