Tutorial: Open Source Docs for Open Source Projects

Stuart Clements | Lecture, Room 2, 2. day

More and more software is being developed in the open source.

At VMware, the Information Experience team (IX) has just completed its first fully open source doc project, working in lock-step with a development team as they produced a product in the open source. In this session we will discuss the challenges of creating open source docs, including working in Github, authoring in Markdown, using Gitbook to create output, keeping docs in sync with development, relaxing the concept of doc ownership, addressing customer requirements during production, and so on.
