Integrating Development, Documentation and Reporting

A session at Write the Docs

Tuesday 9th April, 2013

4:40pm to 5:20pm

Let’s explore the amazing things that happen when you combine reporting with documentation. We’ll start with a retro-chic command-line task management tool named ‘ado’, and create a beautifully modern D3-based interactive task explorer (no server necessary). Learn how powerful documentation-driven development can be, and the benefits of freeing documentation and reporting from their usual separate silos.

In this talk we will simultaneously document Bash, Python, SQL, CSS, HTML and JavaScript using HTML, PDF, epub, Excel and .docx formats (with just a single command!). You’ll learn about Dexy, the document and data automation tool that makes this possible by working alongside the documentation tools you already know and love.
