Being a technical writer is an awesome vocation: You get to work at home, you get to set your own schedule, and you get to help other people understand and use technology, which is a big warm-fuzzy-feeling generator. But perhaps the best part of technical writing is getting to be among the first to not only use but also really dive into the latest and greatest software and hardware. The hardware side is often the most fun, because it means you get to play with gadgets, and that’s a gadget geek’s definition of a dream job. So, to say I had a blast researching and writing about the latest version of the iPad redefines the word understatement. What self-respecting gadget guy wouldn’t have a perma-grin while poking and prodding this device to see just what it can do?
And what self-respecting technical writer wouldn’t be constantly shaking his head in admiration while working with the amazing editorial team at Wiley? The people I worked with directly included Associate Publisher Jim Minatel, Project Editors Maureen and Scott Tullis, Copy Editor Kim Wimpsett, and Content Refinement Specialist Barath Kumar Rajasekaran. My heartfelt thanks to all of you for your outstanding work on this project.
