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:
Questions or feedback
Make sure to connect on Twitter - I will be happy to answer any of the questions you might have about building open source documentation. Additionally, make sure to check out the blog post on building your own docs in the cloud if you are curious about deploying your own open docs infrastructure.
