We chat with Jared Bhatti and Zachary Sarah Corleissen, two technical writers with deep experience at major tech companies and open source projects, about their approach to documentation and the new book they helped co-author, Doc For Devs.
When your open-source project starts getting contributors, it can feel great! But as a project grows, contributors can neglect to document everything.
All too often, developers go deep on the wrong things, when writing documentation. A little bit of empathy can get your docs back on track.
If there is one thing developers like less than writing documentation, it's responding to unnecessary escalations.
In an effort to rethink how documentation works, we recently introduced Articles, longer-form prose that can sit side by side with shorter Q&A.
