GitBook with Addison Schultz

Documentation is something that everyone knows is important but it’s often difficult to get right. On software teams, good documentation can help to onboard new people, improve communication across teams, and troubleshoot technical issues. When an application, API, or library is a commercial product, the quality of its documentation can determine whether it attracts users and succeeds on the market.

GitBook is a popular documentation platform built with TypeScript and Node. It’s found particular use among software teams for creating technical documentation. Addison Schultz is the Developer Relations Lead at GitBook and he joins the show to talk about GitBook’s development, software stack, and how it’s adding new integrations for VS Code, Slack, and other tools.

Full disclosure: GitBook is a sponsor of Software Engineering Daily.
