Our Fearless Documentation Leader at Fortinet
After completing a science degree at the University of Waterloo, Bill began his professional life teaching college chemistry in Corner Brook, Newfoundland and fell into technical writing after moving to Ottawa in the mid '80s.

Bruce Davis

Bruce Davis

Technical Writer at Fortinet
Bruce has been working with computers, and related technology, since before the World Wide Web was a thing. He has worked in system and network administration. He has even dabbled in technical support. He has made the switch to technical writing as part of his deep, dark and dastardly plan to make the arcane machinations of IT technology more easily understood by the poor folks who use it. That, and the voices in his head told him it was good idea. Never argue with the voices in your head. People will start to stare.

    Has anyone in the product marketing team or technical documentation teams ever create a Fortinet Acronyms document?

    How can I get the 5.4.1 Cookbook? Is there a link to purchase or can my sales rep send me one?
