Dynamic Documentation Delivery
Modern software development is fast, agile, and rapidly deployed. Documentation teams need to keep up. We will showcase a process to create and update content, validate it, and quickly make it available to customers using many of the same tools as developers. We have gone from producing large monolithic releases every few months to dynamically deploying individual topics within minutes.
What can the audience expect to learn?
The audience will see a demonstration of a process using readily available tools such as Git, TeamCity, Schematron, and Python to continuously add and update content on demand. An existing CCMS can also be included as part of the pipeline.
