Contributing advice and experiences from tech writers around the globe.
Do you find yourself in the shoes of someone who has to write documentation for the first time ever? The closer you look, the more you will find that technical writing is actually quite a broad discipline.
This has been an exciting past several months for The Good Docs Project! Our band of passionate documentarians and developers have worked hard on our efforts to investigate, synthesize, and share best practices in technical writing.
A writing portfolio is a collection of samples of your own writing—basically, it shows what you can do. A strong portfolio goes further and shows how you think.
Often we struggle to write docs, especially when it’s something that isn’t explicitly part of our job or one of our passions. Like a chore, though, we know it still needs to be done.
