About this event


Today, more than ever, it’s not enough to just write code. We need to communicate it efficiently for the benefit of our future selves, our colleagues, and sometimes people on the other side of the world. This journey typically starts with documentation and sometimes evolves to blog posts and even technical books.

In this meetup, we will be talking with a panel of people with experience in the various areas to talk about what’s easy and hard, the pros and cons, and tips for how to do a good job writing more than code.

He started doing technical writing as a Wikipedia editor and later as an academic researcher, and the transfer of those skills into his software development career was a natural progression — as was the gradual involvement with open-source projects.

Nowadays, his time is split between his day job as a technical writer at Feedzai, his role as a husband and father of two young kids, and various open-source and open knowledge projects, as time permits.
