August already flew by and it’s a good time to finally post the presentation I delivered here in Vancouver, BC, at the Open Source Summit North America 2018. This year, it so happened that I had the pleasure of doing two rounds on the same topic - Docs as part of the product: open-source documentation at scale.
The two rounds were:
- A lighting talk, giving a high-level overview of where we’re going with open docs.
- A full-sized talk, diving into the details of our journey from a closed ecosystem to what we built with docs.microsoft.com.
You can view the video of my lightning talk on YouTube:
The full-talk was, unfortunately, not recorded, but the slides for it are available on SlideShare - they cover the high-level topics, and should give you a pretty good idea of what the discussion was about:
