09/2015 – 12/2015

Experis, Lead Tech Writer/Information Architect:  Managing and performing software development documentation tasks for a large, undocumented .NET application.  Tasks including capturing use cases from developers and customer representatives, designing and implementing automated source code documentation build and deployment.  The documentation started at the use case level, with each use case pointing into a component/entry point of the logical architecture, which in turn pointed into source code projects, database schema, and individual source files. Unfortunately the High and Low level docs contain proprietary information that could not be easily scrubbed.

3/2013 - 12/2014

 

As the information architect, team lead, project manager, and point of contact for the entire outsourced Cisco developer documentation project, I authored, re-wrote, edited, researched, verified, wrote code for, and/or managed a large percentage of the public-facing product documentation here:

https://developer.cisco.com/collaboration

 

Many of these documents had to be released in Cisco’s pre-existing format so as to maintain consistency.  The older formats, which long predated my involvement, were quite inferior, being dry and sequential, not lending themselves to online perusal or hyper-linking.

Part of my task was to begin to design a new look-and-feel, taxonomy, and structure for both online and offline documentation for the REST, SOAP, and XML APIs.

Some of this work can be seen on the DevNet site today, predominantly in the HTML generated by our Markdown documentation environment.

 

I also wrote a large amount of Cisco internal documentation which is not available, unfortunately.

These included internal Cisco product release notes, tutorials, prototype templates, interview questionnaires, PowerPoint presentations which described upcoming products and concepts, and engineering team technical feedback.

 

As a side note, several of the other products I worked on have changed names, been superseded, or were cancelled before release.

 

Currently, you can see the work I authored below.  I created the content and related documents that can be found at the following example links:

There are many more examples, but this should be sufficient to give you an idea of the sort of documentation I produce in the software development space.
