We Should Write This Down Somewhere — Documentation for Beginners

Speakers: Dennis Wurster

Level: Fundamental, Hands-on (BYOD for attendees)

Excerpt: Documentation. It sounds like a great idea, but how do you get started? Before you can start over-thinking which tool to use, we’re going to help you figure out what’s important, how it’s related, and how to keep track of it.

Description: When it comes to documentation, the considerations can be paralyzing. Everyone wants to have effective documentation, but they’re not sure how to get started, or how to improve what they already have. We’re going to discuss a simple and achievable framework based on people, stuff, and events that anyone can start with. We’ll also help you identify what’s important in your particular environment, and the relationships each of these entities have. We’ll walk through a few aspects like accessibility, expiration, and formatting but without over-complicating things.
