Technical documentation in the Agile process
Does your company develop software using the Agile process and you are struggling to meet expectations, or is your company talking about going agile and you are wondering how tech doc creation will fit in? This presentation will look at how tech docs fits with an agile software process, based on experiences of writers in several different development teams all of whom think they are working or are trying to work agile. The presentation will start with a brief definition of what is considered as agile tech doc creation, and then present brief some case studies highlighting success and points of failure. At the end of the presentation a discussion is expected where the audience can ask questions or present very brief case stories that expand on the knowledge shared.
