In my spare time, I enjoy collaborating with different open source projects. In these projects I contribute to technical documentation, through writing or copyediting.
For example, I often help re-style prose to better suit a specified tone or audience. Recently I’ve even started doing some front-end web design and UI-UX writing. By volunteering I’ve learned valuable lessons, met interesting people, and developed so many new skills.
Here is a snapshot of projects that I have contributed to:
LibreOffice - a project of The Document Foundation, LO is a free and open-source office suite
Here’s a video commemorating the 10th anniversary of LibreOffice, with special focus on the amazing community members. (Skip ahead to 1:24 for a familiar face!)
