Is documentation an after-thought on your project? Is it painful to keep up to date? Establish a lightweight, collaborative process that encourages the maximum level of contribution from developers, writers and users. Learn how to eliminate technological barriers, publish to multiple formats and establish documentation best practices for your project.
This session will discuss the current state of documentation best-practices at Eclipse, then move into a step-by-step tutorial showing how to implement these best-practices using Mylyn WikiText, Ant and a wiki. Finally, you'll learn how to integrate this into your build process so that your product includes current documentation with every build.
