Software writing has a reputation for being staid and stuffy. It’s hard to counter that impression by pointing to a typical computing bookshelf.
Dry and factual literature is fine, but what about experimenting and playing with form to produce quirky and unusual types of work? Could we do a lot more in this regard?
In this talk, I’d like to argue that technical writing in software could (and should) be a lot more creative and playful and that there are numerous examples to inspire us from other fields.
