Distill technical concepts into plain language.

“What have you done lately?”

How often do you find yourself interested in what someone has done recently rather than a long time ago?

In the spirit of that, I have done these things in the past couple months:

  • Trained engineers on how to write technical documentation using DITA (Darwin Information Typing Architecture), which is an open standard that promotes topic-based authoring.
  • Paired on an integration between DITA source code and a Zendesk knowledge base.
  • Ported technical documentation from Sphinx and reStructuredText to DITA.
  • Communicated in English and German with engineers.
  • Created a kanban board for myself to make the most use of my time.

I am currently learning Python.
