Shorter Presentation(10 - 15min):
Docs for Humans - Gabriel Konkle
From esoteric to non-existent to just plain incorrect. Paltry documentation pervades our community. Can you blame the creators, though? There are hardly enough hours in the day (unless you're Beyoncé,) and creators know senior devs will just read the source. Why bother?
I believe our industry will only benefit from making our tools more accessible, approachable, and accurate. When we boost others' abilities to create, we may find ours boosted, too. Let's spend less time furrowing brows at ambiguous docs and more time creating!
I intend to show you simple, practical ways to make your documentation understandable and easy to read by developers of all stripes. I will also introduce you to an ambitious project underway called "Docs for Humans." Instead of relying on time-starved creators to keep their documentation up to date, Docs for Humans relies on the community who actually uses the tools day to day. It's like Wikipedia for documentation. Learn how to get involved.
For over a decade, I was a visual artist, the world of photography, video production, and graphic design being my milieu. Now, my creative abilities lend my programming a unique quality, as I engineer the front end of universal applications to be charming, functional, and beautiful.
