Technical Writing Simplified

The PEO-Oakville Chapter invites you to a seminar on:

Technical Writing Simplified

Engineers often have to write or contribute to the documentation process, and it’s always a chore. What do I need to include? How do I write this? Isn’t there someone else who can do this?

The good news is that creating technical documentation isn’t as difficult or onerous as it seems. Matthew Bin, a consultant and technical writer for 20 years, will explain how to create effective manuals for the products you work on, including tips that only someone who’s written over a million words of professional documentation would know.
