Workshop 2D: Writing Standards to Facilitate Accurate Programming
5 August 2022 from 1345 - 1415 EDT

Standards are written by humans but many standards are ultimately applied via computer programming. Writing your standards with the computer programmer in mind can help make the processing and application of your standards more consistent. Developing standards using consistent terminology can also improve the results of both enterprise search and web search. This talk focuses on how to improve technical standards from the perspective of someone who has performed both the computer programmer and business analyst roles in standards development.
