Producing Effective API Documentation

Presented by

Rob Vaglia, Vice President of Industrial and Technology, Orbis Technologies

About this talk

Developers often cite API documentation as the most important part of an API, yet many organizations that create them don't invest in ensuring their API documentation experience is the best it can be. Your API documentation should be a value-add to your API, not a point of frustration requiring users to call for support. Many companies struggle when they rely on their software developers to create their API documentation. Software developers may write excellent code, but that skill set does not typically carry over to documenting their work. Because low-quality or outdated API software documentation reflects poorly on the work of your development team and results in increased support calls, you should aim to develop effective API documentation created to make it easy for developers to work with your API, leaving your software developers time for what they do best: write code. Join us for a presentation from Rob Vaglia, Vice President of Industrial & Technology at Orbis Technologies, about producing useful, modern, and productivity-enhancing API documentation. You'll discover how high-quality API documentation can give you a competitive advantage, providing developers with content that creates confidence in your API, your service, and your brand. This program is brought to you by The Content Wrangler and sponsored by Orbis Technologies.
