I’m home from Boston, and the DevDay was clearly a success. I think I got more out of observing the interactions between the various people in attendance than from the presentations and breakout sessions themselves. Not because those sessions weren’t informative — which they were — but because it’s helpful for me as a writer to observe the questions people ask and to learn by doing so where the documentation might need added attention.
It’s also of course helpful to note the directions in which development might go in the future, in order to not be taken entirely by surprise when some new feature needs documenting.
The MDC documentation to-do list continues to grow. There’s so much to do, and not nearly enough time to do it all. I continue to look forward to getting an intern or two to help take the load off this summer.
