TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I am currently working on proposal for a class project that would
develop a technical writing website to be used as a resource for
professional writing students at Purdue University. I will be developing
a mock site to be used as an example and would like to get the
"professional perspective" on the content. Below you will find some
topics that I plan to acknowledge on my site.
Technical Writing skills
Technical Reference guides
Suggested computer skills -- What's useful/recommended?
PDF vs. HTML
Software Packages -- An analysis/explanation.
