I have just got a job which i have accepted as a technical writer.  I have had 2 years experience as a .net developer since leavin university and so am completely new to technical writing.  I will have to write overviews, design procedures, QA's and API's (all in relation to, javascript, xml etc).

I was wondering if anyone could give me links to websites for examples of the above as I really don't know how indepth these documents should go?  In fact, in my current role there was no documentation whatsoever and I'm feeling out of my depth.  Has anyone has written technical documents they would be willing to email me so I have a better idea?  Also would it be useful to join the STC or if there are any good books I can buy?

Thanks in advance for any comments.
