Helen's journey started with a "classical" computer science degree at the end of the 90s but took a sharp turn toward technical writing. Helen told us the horror story of her first development job. We discussed her misconceptions about technical writing and what it became for her. We talked about advocating for the users and why in 2020, she accepted to work for JetBrains as a developer advocate. We finished talking about writing, content creation, and scratching your own itch!
