TCUK online – January 2022

In January 2022, Mark Lewin will join us to give a presentation about working in developer documentation. This is a rescheduling of the postponed August event.

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.

About the presenter

Mark Lewin

Mark Lewin is a technical writer and trainer and the author of books and training courses on various programming topics. He currently works on the documentation team at Ably. He has a particular interest in web mapping APIs, probably due to his terrible sense of direction.

When he’s not hunched over a keyboard, he likes to act (badly) in a local drama group and take his kids on one of his (now infamous) “circular walks”, where the true answer to the question “Are we there yet?” is “I haven’t got a clue”.
