About this course

Join us to talk about the Docs as code approach, its benefits, and how to implement it in your documentation.

Docs as code is a practice that has always been present in the industry. Even then, most software documentation is still written “the old fashioned way”, and it becomes useless and outdated faster than we would like to admit.

All software needs documentation, but in the agile era, how do we keep documentation relevant and accessible for engineers?

You either find yourself with two problems: The software you are working with is not documented or the documentation is so old that is no longer viable.

In this Panel discussion you will:

  • Learn how to improve your documentation using programming software to keep your docs updated and accessible to your audience.
  • Learn how to change from traditional documentation to docs as code.
