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:
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.
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.
Techwriter child of surprise. He never thought about future in tech comm when he was taking up philological studies. He never ceased to think about future in tech comm when he was graduating from philological studies. He has taken only a few first steps in the documentation world. An affair with translation resulted in an interesting way of spending free time. Three years in a religious order suggest that he is a person with clearly stated believes and with a healthy dose of discipline. Sports – running, board games – cooperation, desserts – Tiramisu.
Professionally — a technical writer, privately — a classical singer and pizza lover. His greatest achievement would be to live through a day without drinking a cup of coffee. An unquestionable geek and nature aficionado.
Martyna works with technical documentation every day. Complicated machines, production lines and food technology are her favourite things. In her spare time, Martyna loves traveling, riding bike, climbing, walking in the mountains, crocheting and reading books. She likes sophistication and experimentation. From time-to-time she writes articles and draws pictures.
Michał Skowron (a member of the editorial staff from 01.2014 to 06.2019)
