Technical Writing Best Practices

Prepare documents faster and with confidence when you become familiar and comfortable with the rules and methods of technical writing.

Many engineers, programmers, scientists, and other professionals understand their specialty. But they cannot explain it in a clear, engaging fashion to management, customers, and even fellow technical specialists. They also do not understand that technical writing is not merely a regurgitation of technical facts but a means to educate, inform, persuade, and instruct other people: their readers. This topic helps the persons responsible for writing technical documents in their organization write better and faster. You will become familiar and comfortable with the rules and methods of technical writing so you can prepare documents faster and with greater confidence. Even more important, you will learn to write clear, concise, engaging, technical accurate, and even persuasive prose.
