About this talk

Writing application programming interface (API) documentation is a widely sought-after skill that is expected to continue rising in demand. Yet, getting started writing API documentation can be difficult. It’s not taught in schools, there are few private certification programs, and organizations often fail to provide adequate training. But there are ways to break into this specialty. It’s not about meeting requirements or obtaining college degrees. It’s about understanding expectations and needs and writing to meet them. Join us April 13, 2021, for a chat about documenting APIs with Robert Delwood, a long-time programmer-writer with experience crafting API documentation for NASA, Microsoft, and the U.S. military. He is a former software engineer with NASA, now working in Chicago serving the documentation needs of organizations in the legal and healthcare industries.
