I have 18+ years experience as a technical writer writing for developer, end user, and system administrator audiences in Silicon Valley. I am a "been there and done it all" writer--full-time, part-time, consulting, contract writer, and remote. My experience ranges from Fortune 500, big, medium companies to small startups. I am proficient in many of the latest authoring tools in the industry--look at my skill set for details.
I have authored a variety of application and technical software guides: programmer’s, SDK reference, system administrator, user, implementation, installation, configuration, operator's, quick start, getting started guides, release notes, and internal documentation. My expertise is in documenting REST APIs, programmer's and SDK reference guides for C, Java, C++ APIs using Doxygen and Javadoc.
I have documented in an Agile environment. I have authored in single sourcing tools, Content Management systems, and Wikis. I have also written technical use cases as an analyst. I have been a Confluence administrator and have used many plugins/macros for customizing Wiki pages.
