About Manuel Gordon

Manuel Gordon Manuel Gordon is a technical writer, programmer, and computer science professor.

With more than 25 years in the IT industry, Manny has worked on every technology from mainframes to Web frames.

He studied computer science first at University of Toronto and later at McGill University in Montreal. Manny also worked as a programmer at McGill.

One of his achievements was upgrading a popular statistical package by ripping out old, bug-ridden code, and replacing it with calls to a modern, API-based library.

Next, Manny worked on a pioneering data warehouse project for the Bank of Montreal. Manny designed a major part of the API, implemented it, and of course, documented it.

Since then, Manny has divided his time between teaching and consulting. He is a professor of Computer Science at Vanier College, and has worked as a technical writing or programming consultant for many companies. His resume is sprinkled with names such as DMR, CGI, Hummingbird, Softimage, HP, Fujitsu, Rockwell and Microsoft.

As a technical writer, Manny specializes in documenting APIs, SDKs, and complex data communications software.

Since 1997, Manny has been a partner in Gordon & Gordon, which is best known for giving lively, useful workshops in technical and marketing writing.
