Google online Technical Writing sessions

-----

Every software engineer is also a writer. Improve your technical writing skills 
by taking one of Google's free technical writing courses. We've aimed these 
courses at people in the following roles:

  *   professional software engineers

  *   computer science students

  *   engineering-adjacent roles, such as product managers

The courses are free, fun, and valuable to your career. Thousands of Google 
software engineers have taken and loved these courses. Note that these courses 
focus on technical writing, not on general English writing or business writing.

You need at least a little writing proficiency in English, but you don't need 
to be a strong writer to take these courses. You will find these courses easier 
to understand if you have at least a little background in coding, though you 
don't need to be an expert coder.

This autumn, we're offering the following two courses:

  *   Technical Writing One, which covers the critical basics of technical 
writing.

  *   Technical Writing Two, which covers intermediate topics in technical 
writing.

Each course consists of the following two parts:

  1.  self-paced online pre-class material

  2.  virtual live sessions

Though not a requirement, we strongly recommend doing the self-paced online 
pre-class material prior to attending the virtual live sessions. Click one of 
the following links to access the self-paced online pre-class material
