Description: A leading provider of multi-cloud services for all apps, enabling digital innovation with enterprise control.
Currently, I own the documentation for using plugin-based designs in Automation Assembler. Plug-in based architecture allows users to access resources and properties as defined and documented by the cloud provider, such as Google Cloud, rather than the properties defined by Aria Automation.
I work with a team of 2-4 software engineers and product managers to produce the documentation.
I was one of two technical writers responsible for the Aria Automation Config (formerly SaltStack Config) documentation. Automation Config is a modern configuration management platform with the performance, speed, and agility IT teams need to manage large, complex IT systems and improve efficiency at scale.
I worked with a team of 2-4 software engineers, quality engineers, support services personnel, user experience designers, and product managers to produce documentation for Automation Config.
