Survey about documentation trends that fizzled (one-minute survey)
You can view the survey results dashboard here. For my analysis of the results, see Results of the survey about fizzled trends: Every trend is still with us.
I left this survey in this series because it provides context and rationale for the direction I took. Rather than making assertions about trends across the industry, in this series I look at trends that I embraced or rejected within my own career.
