From the outside, you might think that technical writing changes little over time. If you're involved in technical communication, you'll know that's far from the case. For example, you might be faced with having to adapt to changes in the way development teams work. Today, there are new ways and technologies for assisting users when need help. When it comes to APIs, they require a different type of documentation.
What's more, you're expected to work more efficiently, and be able to manage ever more complicated projects.
It can be scary and exciting. Exciting because there are opportunities to lead and use your skills elsewhere in the organisation. Scary because you might get passed by if you don't have the right skills, or the confidence to show others you can do this type of work.
