Experienced API Technical Writers are becoming more in demand and are among the most highly paid technical writer roles available today. Between 2017 and today, open roles for technical writers with this type of experience has increased approximately 20% in the Seattle area and the prospects for continued increases are high.

In this one-day class, you will learn the technical skills needed to help you start qualifying for these roles and begin to ask for the higher salaries that these jobs command.

Location: MicroFocus
705 Fifth Avenue, Conference Room on bottom level. Suite 1000, Seattle, WA 98104

Things to know: 
Please arrive early! Because this class is being held in a secure building, we ask that you show up on time as the volunteers who will attend the door are also in the course.

Registration Prior to Class Required:
There is no registration allowed on day of class. Please reregister prior to course date so we may have the correct course material, food, and other items ready for the correct number of students. Seats are limited and this type of course is not offered often so we expect it will fill up quickly.

What to Bring:
This is a hands-on workshop. Please bring your laptop. Because the Wi-Fi access can occasionally be iffy, be prepared to use your own phone hotspot just in case we have issues. We are hoping that the solution has been resolved but we’d like you to be prepared.

Food for Breakfast and Lunch:
Continental breakfast and coffee service will be provided for no additional charge.

Bring a lunch as we are working through lunch. There is a refrigerator and the ability to get coffee and other hot drinks at the location. There is not a microwave for you to use so bring appropriate food that doesn’t need to be reheated.

Parking can be challenging in this area of town. We suggest you Uber in or use other forms of mass transit. The Light Rail exit for the International Station is directly under the plaza for MicroFocus.

If you have to park, use the following parking Apps to plot the best location for your car. There is not a morning Mariner Game that day so you won’t be competing with game traffic.

About the Presenter:
Peter Gruenbaum has taught for us before and is a very popular presenter, which is why we picked him for this course above other people we considered.

He is the president of SDK Bridge, which specializes in API documentation. He founded the company to bring together his love of technology and writing. He has worked as an API writer to describe APIs for e-commerce, automobile traffic prediction, electric utilities, cameras, tractors, and cat humor sites, just to name a few. He has published four online courses on writing API documentation on the Udemy platform. Peter received his BA in Physics from the University of Chicago and his PhD in Applied Physics from Stanford University.
