Lately I've been thinking about processes for managing documentation work, and I decided to describe in detail a couple of different workflows -- a process for managing large documentation projects, and another process for managing small documentation requests.

You can read these two new articles here:

I added these two processes into a new section in my API documentation course called Managing developer portals. In that section, I plan to add other info here about managing developer portals, including managing the SDK release process, the documentation review process, and more. I mentioned a general list of some of these topics in From API docs to developer portals.
