Career Guidance Articles
I wrote several articles on career paths and education, directed at an audience of high-school students. The tone was friendly but still professional, providing enough information to give readers a sense of what each profession was like, while not overwhelming them with too much detail. Some of these articles are Educational Leadership, Public Health, Surgical Technology, and Practical Nursing.
Over three years, I documented APIs for a developer and OEM audience. This sample is reference documentation for KITL, a feature of the Windows Embedded Compact core OS. The existing documentation was completely out of date, so I rewrote it from the ground up. This includes the overview topic and subordinate topics, such as OEMKitlStartup and OALKitlInit.
I wrote the Symmetric Multiprocessing Guide for Windows Embedded Compact 7 based on a spec provided by the program manager, who is listed as my coauthor. This is a short whitepaper intended as a quick how-to for developers who are familiar with symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) and want to know how the new OS supports it.
I wrote half of The Basics of Bringing up a Hardware Platform, covering the conceptual material. This whitepaper is quite long at about 40 pages but only covers the tip of the iceberg in what is a complex and highly customized process.
I was assigned to write the release notes for Windows Embedded Compact and CE. This task involved a lot of coordination with tech teams and the content editing and production teams. The most recent release notes I wrote are the Windows Embedded Compact 7 Release Notes.
Web Content Editing
I edited and managed content for the Delaware Estuary Watershed Database and Mapping Project, a Web site funded jointly by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). I uploaded documents and participated in conference calls to determine next steps. I edited images and wrote text for:
Product Demo Video Script
I wrote a video script for a Web-site product demo. The goal was to show potential customers what the site does in 60 seconds or less, following the style of Apple product-demo videos to advertise the ease of use with a “show, don’t tell” approach.
