What a working day can look like

I spend the rest of the day learning about the features that the developers are working on. To be able to update and create information, I need to understand the upcoming software and hardware changes. My curiosity is a driving factor for learning and keeping up with the development.
Having an eye for details makes it easier to pinpoint relevant componentsto update and weave information pieces together. Once I have identified the necessary changes, I write the first draft, usuallybased oninput and feedback from the developers.
In parallel with this, I am also working closely with my Technical Writers colleagues. We frequently conduct peer reviews and each week weengage in CoP activities to improve workflows and processes. ”
