Writing a Beginners Guide to DocumentationΒΆ

A few days ago I started a campaign to improve documentation. Today I have the first results to show from this work.

It started first with a presentation that I presented at PDX Python here in Portland. The talk was very well received, so I decided to write it up.

So, I present A beginners guide to writing documentation. It is still very much a work in progress, so I hope that you can provide feedback. The idea behind the presentation and document is to allow people modify and present it themselves. I am hoping to build documents and presentations for other aspects of documentation as well. If you want to give this presentation, I would love for you to email me.

As I said, this work was done as part of my ongoing work on Documentation. If you think this work is important, you should support me on Gittip.

Hey there! I'm Eric and I work on communities in the world of software documentation. Feel free to email me if you have comments on this post!
