Online class on technical writing principles
Google has published a few technical writing classes, which are available for people to attend and/or teach. I’ll be running one of the classes next week, at a time that’s convenient for the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. If you’re an engineer or software developer who wants to improve your technical writing skills, then this course is designed for you. The course is also useful for technical writers and others who want to brush up their tech writing skills and/or tech the class at a future date.
The dates and times of all upcoming classes are published on the Google Developers Technical Writing site. The classes are run by various people, including Googlers and others.
Here are the details of the class that I’m running:

The Tech Writing One course was developed by technical writers at Google to train engineers and others in the principles of effective technical writing. It’s fun and interactive. The combination of pre-class reading followed by in-class exercises and discussions works well to help the participants retain what they’ve learned.
