Going Modular: Turning Legacy Docs into User-Story-Based Content

Aneta Steflová | Lecture, Room 2, 1. day

How to adapt the big guides of yesterday into modularized narratives that are easy to maintain, scale well, and still allow for a ‘guide-like’ experience when it is required?

This presentation will describe the work documentation writers at Red Hat are doing to solve this problem: re-purposing the existing body of documentation into modular units that can be combined into content based on user stories. Inspired by agile workflows, documentation user stories are applicable for all kinds of development projects. The talk will also outline how to leverage the modular structure of content to present it to users in a dynamic manner - using a metadata-based, hierarchical navigation.
