Kai Weber gets a kick out of technical communications that make users excel and look good. More formally speaking, he’s a Senior Technical Writer for SimCorp in Frankfurt and Copenhagen. He got into technical communications during high school, translating a COBOL programmer’s guide. Since then, he’s been writing, editing and translating software documentation. After graduating with an M.A. in American Studies, Kai became a full-time tech writer in 1999 and has focused on financial and banking systems since 2001. Sometimes, his interest in cognitive science catches up with him. Kai blogs at kaiweber.wordpress.com and tweets as @techwriterkai.
Kai’s session is called: ‘Addicted to meaning: Mental models for technical communicators‘.
