Talk (40 min) Documentation

Speaker

Dimple Kuriakose
Canonical

Description

In this talk, we’ll delve into different aspects of documentation – both from a technology perspective and from a people perspective. We’ll consider information architecture, automation, quality and means of getting things done. We’ll try to answer questions like “How to make documentation useful and yet easy to use?”, “How to ensure an easier life for both the producer and the consumer of documentation?”. In the process, we’ll hopefully figure out if documentation can be thought of as fun or not.

Any other info we should know?

The talk will introduce the audience to different aspects of documentation and hopefully make them interested in it. The topic is relatively non-technical and if possible I would like to make it interactive.
