Title:  Introduction to API Technical Writing

Summary: APIs are a hot topic in our field, and the demand is growing for technical writers with the skills to document them. API stands for Application Programming Interface. Developers use APIs to make apps that communicate with other apps and software/hardware components. API technical writers create documentation that helps developers hook their apps up to someone else’s API.

Have you ever wondered what API technical writers do and how they go about it? Perhaps you’d like to move into developer-focused documentation yourself and need some tips on getting started. Join Sarah Maddox as she discusses what an API is and demonstrates some easy-to-use APIs that you can play with later yourself. Examine examples of API documentation and gather some ideas on getting started in this field. It’s an exciting and rewarding area of technical communication!

Bio: Sarah Maddox is a technical writer at Google, focusing on Google Maps APIs. With 15 years’ experience in technical communication and 10 as a software developer, she’s a specialist in making words and code play nicely together. She has a strong belief that chocolate solves many a tech comm problem.
Hope to see you making most out of this webinar.
