The Value of Documentation

Guests: Anne Gentle, Developer Experience Manager, Cisco DevNet, and Celeste Horgan, CNCF


Even in the most successful open source communities, lack of documentation, poor quality documentation, or documentation which is out-of-date, are among the top user complaints. Yet documentation is not often prioritized early in the life cycle of open source projects.

This week, Dave Neary is joined by Celeste Horgan, Technical Writer for the CNCF, and Anne Gentle, author of "Docs Like Code" and "Conversation and Community", a Developer Experience Manager at Cisco DevNet, to discuss the business value that documentation can bring by engaging with technical writers and editors early in the development cycle, and why user and developer documentation is so often an afterthought in open source.
