One of the biggest complaints from developers that work with APIs is the lack of good documentation. The most common reason for this is that documentation is an afterthought for many API developers. API developers have to manage their own deadlines, keep up with any architectural updates, and make sure their code works as expected on top of many other things. So how is documentation more important than any of these things and when do you have the time to write it? In this talk, attendees will learn how to implement documentation in every aspect of their API development and management. We’ll cover the reasons why you need documentation in the development phase and how it translate to the management phase. Then we’ll go over several strategies to make documentation easier for API developers to write and better for other developers to use. This will highlight concerns like how documentation helps with scaling, how it helps keep a cleaner codebase, and how it helps make an API more maintainable over time.
