Technical Writing is a profession with a bright outlook, and the sun is burning hottest in the open source arena. Remote source control sites like GitHub and BitBucket are new landscapes for technical writers. These sites provide places where you can learn and exercise new skills. They also present a gateway opportunity for finding your next job.

Get an introduction to the open source arena and the tools you’ll find there. Learn how open source has changed the writer’s authoring environment and how you can leverage what you find to work in new ways.
