Docs as Code: Publishing Processes for API Experiences
The Austin API Meetup is back with another great event! Join ShipEgine on August 18th from 5:30-7:30 pm CT as Anne Gentle will be joining us to speak about API Experiences. When you treat docs like code, you multiply everyone’s efforts and streamline processes through collaboration, automation, and plain old hard work. To create a cohesive API experience, developers, technical marketing engineers, technical writers, and product managers can work together on GitHub to produce web pages and API documentation, including interactive API docs and tutorials. The ways you can leverage developer processes and tools in a docs-as-code system vary widely. Let's walk through some examples including tools, version control, publishing workflows, approvals, source formats, checklists, automated testing, and final approval.
Don't miss out on the Happy Hour, networking, and knowledge! There is limited seating for this event, reserve your spot now!
