About the Instructor

Anindita Basu is a technical writer and completely in love with her profession. She started with writing user manuals, went through a relationship with DITA (it’s complicated), became a firm believer in design models that need none to minimal documentation, and is currently trying to set up an authoring and publishing process at a startup in Bangalore. In her free time, she watches movies, reads books, listens to music, and then goes back to read some more books. Her areas of interest include mythology, etymology, and ancient history.

She has created APIs around the vedas, a web app around the Mahabharat, and a translation app, all of which use Markdown, GitHub, Jekyll, and Liquid to some degree.
