Due to the fact that I have been working as a staff technical writer for the past few years at companies which provide documentation only to customers (Avaloq Innovation Ltd., Autonomy Systems Ltd., and NCR), I am unable to provide samples of my work here. My current work includes user guides, administration guides, training, and white papers.
Valley Technology Ltd.
I worked for Valley Technology Ltd. in Edinburgh for a year (July 2008 – August 2009) as their in-house technical writer. During that period, I wrote all the end-user guides for their bespoke software applications. A few samples of my work for The PODFather (Valley Technology’s pay-as-you-go proof-of-delivery software) can be found here.

On 17th April 2010, I took part in the Graduate Development Community’s Open Source Jumpstart London 2010 event. During this event, graduates were assigned to various open source projects to contribute to. I wrote documentation for the Citrene Scheduler project. My contributions can be found in the wiki section of the project page under the user “PhileinSophia”. A PDF printout of the wiki document can also be downloaded here: Citrine_Usage.pdf.
