About us

WERSJA POLSKA

Why are we doing this?

Because technical communication is not only our profession but also our passion. We were missing a website providing news, information about documentation tools, best practices, conferences, trainings and other events from the tech comm area. We couldn’t wait anymore, that’s why in a moment of weakness we decided to create it.

We have the following goals:

  • Providing information about the Polish and foreign tech comm scenes
  • Following current events
  • Writing about tech comm seriously and cheerfully
  • Building a Polish knowledge base about technical communication that helps novice Tech Writers start their careers and broadens the knowledge of more experienced specialists
  • Spreading awareness about the Technical Writer profession in Poland
  • Building a community and sharing experience

Who are we?

We’re a small group of people who, in a broad sense, professionally create, distribute, and manage technical documentation.

Some of us are humanists who got into the tech comm field thanks to their proficiency in foreign languages and still try to get their heads around technical nuances. Others hold degrees in engineering and love to write but they don’t necessarily know how to do it. We worked or still work in corporations, large and small companies, and as freelancers. We like this job and vice versa 🙂

Meet the current editorial staff:

Dariusz Drezno

DD

The originator and a co-founder of techwriter.pl. He suffers from hyperactivity – a tester, trainer, consultant, manager, mentor, entrepreneur, lecturer, board member of ITCQF… One field isn’t enough for him. That’s why in addition to technical communication, he works in quality assurance. He loves basketball. Sometimes, you can meet him on a tennis court.

Michał Skowron

His adventure with technical communication started in 2012 after he abandoned a not-even-started career in modelling. Two years later, he joined techwriter.pl. Along with his colleagues, he tries to grow the Polish tech comm scene. Currently, he’s as a Technical Lead in 3di Poland and a trainer for ITCQF. He’s interested in unpopular sports, like cycling, basketball, and running. If he wasn’t a tech comm specialist, he’d become a fireman.

Agnieszka Gaworska

20100605-175438-23626266

For the last year, she’s been gaining experience in tech comm, mainly as an editor of techwriter.pl. She graduated in English. Currently, she’s occupied with being a mother and blogger. Agnieszka is passionate about travelling, photography, and reading.

Paweł Kowaluk

He’s been working in the tech comm field since 2008. He started as a Tech Writer, then he moved to developing documentation tools and implementing DITA. Board member of ITCQF. Currently, he works at 3di Poland. In his free time, Paweł likes to write flash fiction, read books and play computer games. He’s waiting for robots to replace us so we can finally go on holidays. He’s never tried skiing but each year he keeps telling himself that he’ll definitely do it.

Jakub Wiśniewski

An English translation studies graduate, fiction writer and musician. An ex-translator, receptionist, actor, waiter, teacher and Santa Claus. In 2016, he joined 3di Poland as a Junior Technical Writer. A PhD student at the Department of Linguistic Pragmatics and Theory of Translation and Interpreting. He’s a fan of the term „techwriter”, which he predicts to completely replace „technical writer” approximately ten years from now.
