What does the listener learn

Developers use feature toggles (flags, switches, or controls) to deliver software functionality that can be turned on or off.

Authors can adopt practices to match feature-toggled development with feature-toggled documentation. Join the discussion as we explore how profiling (or conditional text) can be used to feature toggle documentation, and to facilitate quick delivery cycles, feature rollback, and dynamic documentation rendering for users.

Content

Learn how to apply principles of feature-toggled development to authoring and publishing of documentation.

Previous Knowledge

The presentation includes xml code snippets and concrete documentation examples. A minimum level of professional experience is strongly recommended for audience members to achieve maximum benefit from discussions.
