In this presentation, we will go through recent developments in minimalism in technical communication: the minimalist documentation process, a revised set of minimalism heuristics, and results from minimalism workshops using the revised heuristics in both business and educational environments.
Through practical examples from workshops, you will discover how minimalism can be applied in the current technical communication environment, including environments where hardware products are being developed.
