Meet the Team¶
Our conference is run by a dedicated team consisting mostly of volunteers. This page outlines the folks who are helping get things done, and what their roles are.
Swapnil initiated Write the Docs in Australia in 2016. He is fortunate enough to live in one of the world’s most liveable cities - Melbourne, Australia. While he is not travelling, watching Test cricket or building a mini library by visiting bookshops and fairs, he works as a contract technical writer on local and remote projects.
Rajie is a contract technical writer at Linode. In both writing and development, she is passionate about Linux, OpenSource projects, Accessibility, and Kubernetes. When she is not writing or hosting a Write the Docs meet-up in India, she is gardening or up-cycling old furniture.
Sam has been organizing Write the Docs conferences for a few years now. He lives in Berlin unless he’s off to a conference or death metal festival somewhere. Sam is a contract technical writer working with Red Hat and various other companies.
Linette Voller is a content design manager at Atlassian. She spends her days enabling people do the best work of their lives and explores how to communicate ideas, knowledge, and process. A WIICTA national award winner she has over 16 years international experience across government and the private sector; small business to Fortune 500. Doodling and improvisation light up her heart. With communication as a key skill, Linette still shudders at writing bios and is thankful that you took the time to read this.
Jared has been a Technical Writer for about 17 years now. When he’s not helping organisations plan and deliver documentation as a product, he co-hosts the Write the Docs and BlahCade Pinball Podcasts, and restores pinball machines to their former glory.
