Activity: Create or fix an API reference documentation topic
This part of the activity might be challenging, but here is where you’ll start building some examples for your portfolio.
- In the same project as before, identify one of the API reference topics that needs help. (If the API has a new reference endpoint to document, focus on this endpoint.)
- Edit the topic to improve it. (If it’s a new endpoint, write the documentation for it.)
- Create a pull request and contribute your edits to the project.
