Course Description

In this quick start course, we start with a quick and direct overview of the end-to-end documentation creation processes.

By the end of this course, you should get a basic understanding of what technical writing in software documentation is all about. You will be able to name the main assets (deliverables for your customers) that you create using technical writing skills and techniques. For example, such are the software documentation itself, images, as well as instructional videos, and multimedia.

For several years now, JPDocu School of Technical Writing has been designing and delivering training on user assistance for:

  • technical writers (information developers)

  • information architects

  • software developers 

The instructor, Jordan Stanchev, a User Assistance Development Architect and a PMI certified project management professional (PMP) has personally trained hundreds of people in the classroom, online courses, universities, and internally at SAP - a Fortune 100 company! 

Jordan says: "The goal for me has always been to deliver practical information, to make sure my trainees get ready for delivering real content, right after the course is over. 

I am so proud of my students who come back to me and share how they have started their first job as a technical writer or how they have advanced in their career using what they have learned in my courses!

That's the reason I have started devoting my time to teaching technical writing skills, on top of my regular job as a User Assistance Development Architect."

So, enroll now and see how easy and simple it is to deliver help for your software app customers!
