Technical writing

tutorials, manuals, reports…

Did you know that researchers spend about half of their professional lives doing academic and technical writing? For example, research students spend at least a third of their studies writing their theses, without counting papers, and bids for grants.

Technical writing includes a lot of different types of texts, such as scientific papers, technical reports, manuals, tutorials, and so on.

Things I have done

I have some experience in writing technical reports and tutorials, and my refereed publications are evidence that I can write at an academic level. Here are some examples.


  • Series of “Learn to code” posts on my personal blog (in Italian)
  • Series on Drupal for the Italian magazine Linux&C, in issues 73, 74, 75
  • Series on Inkscape for the Italian magazine Linux&C, in issues 64, 67
