I am a content project manager. I've worked over 15 years in this industry creating documentation and web content. I specialize in coming into new situations and creating a path forward that is effective and timely. And all with good humor.
I realized that I am a tech dinosaur today. I went to download WebMatrix from Microsoft and found out it is sunsetted. WebMatrix might not have been a great tool, but it was a fully integrated tool capable of creating sites in ASP, PHP, WordPress and others.

Help and Manual was, therefore, the latest tool for me to try in… Read More »Help and Manual
Hello compiled help format with context sensitive help in desktop application. Long time, no see. My recent project required me to essentially step back in time to help authoring as I remember it in the 90s. For the most part, CHM files were a sturdy format that got a lot of mileage and plenty of authoring is still done in that format. It just isn’t web friendly, cloud based, or… Read More »Context sensitive help
