Creating professional API documentation can be a challenge. It is often written by developers who don’t have enough resources and professional writing skills. On the other hand, professional technical writers do not always have the special knowledge and skills required for these topics.
In this session, Anne will give a guided tour of the book, focusing on the areas of most interest, such as documenting REST APIs with the OpenAPI specification, API naming guidelines, and best practices of collaboration between technical writers and developers.
