In this presentation, we will review practical strategies on how to get the most out of a “docs as code” working environment. Based on the presenters’ experiences, we will cover key aspects of this way of working, including:

  • How the “docs as code” model work for us
  • Agile processes
  • Integration with the rest of the company
  • Templating/standards/processes
  • Defining responsibilities


  • Effective processes that work in a multinational company with a large variety of products working in a “docs as code” model
  • Skills required
  • Tradeoffs with more traditional approaches

Prior knowledge

Listeners will benefit from familiarity with software documentation, but this is not a strict requirement.
