What is technical communication?

That’s a good question to start with.

The prime directive for technical communication: audience first.

Everything flows from that. As a technical communicator, my job is to deliver content without compromising its truthfulness or completeness.

I ought to write in the same way that business consultant Pam Slim delivers many of her videos: with Yoda perched on my shoulder: passing on knowledge and wisdom, and instilling confidence in my audience.

What is technical communication to you?
