TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Apart from Python, I have found that a knowledge of Linux is useful.
In addition, many positions ask for API documentation. (API documentation
for technical writers)
There is a free course on this by Tom Johnson.
Also, Udemy has a couple of free courses.
