Meet the Team

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 Ogale

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.

Rajakavitha Kodhandapani

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.

Samuel Wright

Sam has been organizing Write the Docs conferences for more than a few years now. He lives in Berlin unless he’s off to a conference or death metal festival somewhere. Sam works at Buildkite, and is into using CI/CD to make better docs on CI/CD.
