Hi, I’m Sarah
Freelance Technical Content Writer and Lover of the Tech Community
About Coding Writer
Even when you’re wearing your banana-patterned suit, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to remain unique in the technical field. You’re offering innovative products during a time in which everybody’s bragging about their alleged innovations while acing the tech-bullshit-bingo.
However, rest assured that there’s a way to gain the attention of your potential clients without losing your dignity. You don’t need to scream what everybody else screams, or play games you’re overly tired of: You just need to be you and stay true to your ideas and motives.
Coding Writer was born for two reasons:
1. I believe our world would be a much better place if we could avoid misunderstandings and wrong interpretations. Through my work, I want to contribute in the best way I can: Creating content for you and your ideas, that reaches your audience in an intelligible and engaging way. No lies, no showing-off, just portraying your technical side and how human and passionate you are.
2. I love the programming community and want to give something back to the people who helped me so much. I heard people say, that programmers aren’t good at writing or selling themselves. However, this is not true! That’s why I want to share my knowledge about writing and marketing with my fellow developers – we’ll show those nay-sayers!
My name’s Sarah Mischinger, and I’m living in Vienna, Austria. At the end of my 20s, I decided it was time for a significant change in my life and am now building my own business. There are so many things I’ve learned in the last months, and I wouldn’t go back to a regular 9-5 job. So, I’m genuinely grateful for having the opportunity to follow my guts and do what I think is best for current- and future me.
At school, I wanted to study in a language- or literature specific field, but when I found out, that there aren’t too many jobs out there for graduates, I decided to do something different. So I studied Media technology to become a Web Developer.
After I graduated, I worked for an agency for nearly seven years. I started as a full-stack dev, then switched to backend programming entirely until finally, I realized, that I’m missing the joy in my work. That’s when I started focusing on writing again. I took on several writing todos at my last job, and I loved it.
In 2018 I decided to do what I thought was right for me and started building my technical content writing business. Additionally, I started a blog on my website where I teach developers about writing and marketing.
