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.
When I developed training manuals for my department, the users seemed to
respond better to two separate manuals. I believe with two separate
documents, you can find the information in a more timely manner. Plus,
working thru the tutorial gives you hands-on experience first, then if
you have questions, the reference document can assist you.
