In these days, almost everyone in the tech docs community has heard about docs-as-code or docs-like-code, but what exactly are these? What differentiates this way of producing documentation from other ways and tools? How can they be implemented? What knowledge is needed? What are the advantages and disadvantages? Can everyone do this? What does this look like in real life?


You'll learn more about the main components of docs-as-code and how they can be used, who might need them, who doesn't, what the advantages and disadvantages are and how I use them in my everyday work life.

Prior knowledge

Being familiar with software development processes and markdown files used in software documentation
