I'm giving an API documentation workshop in Los Angeles, California, on January 23, 2020. You can view details on EventBrite here.

Input needed: I'm currently conducting a survey about trends in developer documentation for 2020. If you write docs for developers, please take this survey. (You can view the ongoing results viewed here.)

I’ve given numerous presentations and workshops on API documentation, and I’ve recorded most of them. The most recent recordings are available below.

Keep in mind that my API content evolves, so some older presentations might no longer match the course content. I recorded most of these videos during a full-day API documentation in Raleigh, North Carolina, on April 6, 2019. (For more details, see this blog post.) This recording closely aligns with the latest content and activities in this course. I divided this all-day workshop into five separate videos.

One-hour crash course

If you want a condensed version of videos 1-5, see this one-hour version that condenses much of the information from the other videos into one. I recorded this presentation at the STC Summit 2019 in Denver.
