Documentation for Developers and Friends (45 mins)

This talk has been given at DDD Conference, Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne.

It's well known that developers cringe at the thought of creating documentation. Often the biggest barrier to producing documentation is the friction of getting started. In my career as an engineering manager and consultant I've identified and implemented what works best for adopting a code-first approach to documentation.

Shaw will share an approach for adopting “documentation as code” for capturing software architecture, principles, decisions, and technical documentation. The presentation will cover topics including Architecture Decision Records (ADRs), Markdown, Diagramming, and how all of this can be combined to improve the onboarding experience for new developers to your projects.

Join Shaw for this informative and practical session on how your team can adopt lightweight documentation practices that will scale as your organisation does.
