Portfolio

Here is a representative sample of writing by Robert Nagle (both professional and personal).

Hardware & Software Manuals

Marketing/Promotional Technical Documents

Book Production and Design

  • I wrote, produced and published User’s Guide to Plone 4 for Enfold Systems.  View Book sample 1 and Book Sample 2 (both are screenshots from actual pages). Here are two sample chapters: Introduction(PDF) and Chapter 4 (PDF) .Note: for various reasons, the layout for the sample chapters are substantially different from the actual book. The screenshots are more accurate. (Read more about this work experience).
  • Plone Book . I had to polish the English translation of an earlier version of the same book and do a technical review.   Download it here.
  • I have produced 5  ebooks by a well-known author for publication.   I did all the formatting, editing and promotions. You can preview them  on the Amazon.com website here and here.
  • Online annotated bibliography for Civil War fiction.  I repurposed  existing Docbook XML  book content into a static HTML file and applied a responsive web design template so that the content worked well on different devices and screen resolutions.  This 7500 word reference document contained so much information that it needed to be organized clearly, have a built in navigation method and also  serve a marketing purpose without beating people on the head with it.

Renewable Energy/Investigative Reporting

In September 2011 I wrote a long blog post called How to Choose a Texas Energy Provider the wrong way. It offers recommendations and advice to consumers for choosing a power provider. It also describes  the renewable portfolio standard (RPS) and renewable energy credits (REC).

In November 2009 I published  two  investigative pieces titled, “Is your website green?” about data centers  for the Houston Chronicle technology blog.
