New Tech Writer

Authored Comments

Thanks for writing this! I am a budding technical writer myself and have been eager to get experience with software and development-related documentation but have been stymied on how to make inroads. Open source projects were recently suggested to me but as a relatively non-technical (compared to a programmer, anyways) person I was unsure if I could participate by "just" offering documentation. This essay has definitely given me some great pointers, particularly about the mentality needed, and i'm keen to hear advice from anyone else willing to give it.
