About the presentation
Developer documentation is an increasingly in-demand and lucrative area for technical writers to be in. However, many are put off by the assumption that you need to be a programmer to make the switch. In this talk, Mark will tell you what it’s like to work in developer documentation, what skills are required, and how you can find work.
