Writing for Developers: Some Rational Techniques

A session at YUIConf 2012

Wednesday 14th November, 2012

1:00pm to 1:50pm (PST)

So you've written a shiny new Gallery module... now you've got to explain how to use it. Selleck and YUIDoc are powerful tools, but they don't write your docs for you. In this talk we'll demonstrate *how* to be clear, using logical principles for breaking down and organizing prose at the micro level. Above all, we'll talk about how to avoid bad advice and focus on what matters. This is the stuff your college writing instructors should have taught you, but probably didn't.

Speaker Bio:

Evan Goer has been at Yahoo! since 2005. He is the author of the YUI 3 Cookbook, published by O'Reilly Media.
