Lana Brindley and Alexandra Settle
8 writers in under 8 months: from zero to a docs team in no time flat
11:35am Thursday 15th January 2015
Lana and Alexandra are both technical writers as Rackspace, the open Cloud Company.
Lana has been writing open source technical documentation for about eight years, and right now I’m working on documenting OpenStack with Rackspace, she does a lot of speaking, mostly about writing. She also talks about other topics from open source software to geek feminism and working in IT.
Lana is also involved in several volunteer projects including linux.conf.au, Girl Geek Dinners, LinuxChix, OWOOT (Oceania Women of Open Tech), and various Linux Users Groups (LUGs). Alexandra is a technical writer with the Rackspace Cloud Builders Australia team. She began her career as a writer for the cloud documentation team at Red Hat, Australia. Alexandra prefers Fedora over other Linux distributions.
Recently she was part of a team that authored the OpenStack Design Architecture Guide, and hopes to further promote involvement in the OpenStack community within Australia.
