Senior Content Marketer at Stack Overflow

We’ve got an episode for our writers out there today! Ryan Donovan joins us to discuss his 15 years of experience in technical writing, and just how that experience is serving him in his current role - senior content marketer at Stack Overflow.

One thing to know about Ryan is that he is a stickler for getting technical details right, a great quality to have in a technical writer. He even stays away from audience suggestions for topics, as he is careful to always be confident and accurate in his writing. He hosts a podcast under Stack Overflow, as well as writing their newsletter.

As Richard acknowledges, you may need a technical mind to master computer science, but for a technical writer, a willingness to learn anything and everything might be a more apt skill.

Ryan discusses the benefits of being your own harcore tester, treating your own technical writing as if you’ve never seen it before. If you can’t follow your own writing, then you can be pretty sure no one else will either! This a wonderful, writing-focused episode, we hope you enjoy it.
