Hi, my name is Luyao Zhang. I am applying to work for the Plone project as a technical writer. I am a young technical writer at a large international technology company. I mainly focus on writing software help and hardware documentation for end users and service engineers at work. I have learned how to collect information for users, and communicate complex information from their perspectives. However, I want to explore the world of open source projects next to my job, because it is more fun and it gives me more freedom and more opportunities for my future career.
The reason I am applying to work for the Plone project is because, as a technical writer, I am interested in content management systems. This is not a surprise: technical writers create content, and how to manage and distribute content is a constantly interesting question for us. I also investigated content management systems for my master's thesis.
Right now I am exploring the Plone project, and I am enjoying it!
