Docs as Engineering: An intro to Developer Experience Engineering

Talk description

This year Box has invested heavily in Developer Experience Engineering and as part of this they’ve taken the Docs as Code principle to its extreme. They’re not just writing docs as if it is code: they’re also repurposing every bit they write to maximize the output – using it as input into new DXE solutions.

In this talk, Cristiano Betta, senior developer advocate at Box outlines the need to rethink documentation from content to an engineering project. This talk will outline the core principles of a great engineering project, and how they can translate to a documentation project in order to increase output and limit documentation debt. Along the way we’ll examine lessons learned from rebuilding the Box developer documentation, Postman collection, CLI, and SDKs.
