Most documentation today is passive: everyone sees the same documentation, and it could just as effectively be printed in an O’Reilly book and distributed that way.
We know so much about both the documentation and the user; we should be able to do better. “Reactive documentation” morphs and changes based on who the user is, and what their most recent actions were.
In addition to exploring strategies for reactive documentation, we’ll also explore ReadMe.io, and how it can help you with documenting APIs.
