I'm a technical writer who works with (and often helps design) programming interfaces. I've written programming guides, tutorials, reference applications (runnable examples), reference documentation (for Java, C++, C, SOAP, and REST APIs), and even a little user documentation. I'd love to see more technical-writing questions here on Writing!

You can see some of my hobby writing on the Worldbuilding blog, including my Revelation for RPGs series and my (incomplete) serialized story The Sisters' War (start here or read a synopsis of past chapters and jump to the current chapter).

I'm part of the Codidact project, a team working to build a better community-driven Q&A platform. Check out our wiki. One of the leads on the project has kindly given us the site you're using right now, to use until Codidact is ready for us to move onto. (We'll make that as smooth as possible!)
