Webinar tekom Magyarország: Let's Treat Docs Like Code
We at tekom Magyarország started our local events for 2022 with a topic that has been in focus more and more in the last couple of years – creating documentation through collaborative writing. Like most group activities, collaborative writing has both benefits and pitfalls. But with the right approach and processes, we can open up a new world and tap into a pool of diverse experience, skills, and knowledge. However, if we want to encourage people to contribute to our docs, we must look at documentation from a different perspective.
