KellyAnn Fitzpatrick of RedMonk and Andy Stevens (Technical Content Manager, Linode) discuss the importance of documentation to cloud providers (especially alternative cloud providers like Linode). Also covered: the tools Linode uses for its docs-as-code approach to documentation; how to avoid docs sprawl; and tips for creating a better documentation experience.
This was a RedMonk video.
