What your user guide can learn from a chocolate cake, Jessica Ulyate

Writing a technical user guide is hard. It's even harder writing something intended for developers if you're not one yourself. Luckily, you don't have to know code to write a good user guide and in this presentation I'm going to show you that the same components that make a good recipe, also makes a good user guide.

About Jessica Ulyate

A long time ago, Jessica was a developer frustrated with getting unclear instructions. She started writing the specifications, later she dealt with customers, and got tired of explaining the same thing over and over again, so started writing user guides instead. When emailing documentation updates got too tedious, she started building documentation sites. She never thought of documentation as her 'thing', only as something that had to be done. But once she discovered Write the Docs, she realised that deep in her heart, she was always a documentarian.
