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 canât address your specific concern, though Iâm sure others on this list will just wanted to add that Ann Rockley of The Rockley group was always my go-to person for anything related to content management. She has written several books and articles on the subject.
Hope youâre having a great summer!
