Write in AsciiDoc, Publish Everywhere!


By using AsciiDoc, you're already following one of the best practices we recommend. You can write once and publish everywhere!

AsciiDoc takes a lot of the pain out of writing documentation and keeps it DRY. As with any tool, you need to learn the best practices to use it effectively, such as:

  • How to organize your documentation
  • How to make your documentation approachable to contributors
  • How to make your documentation easy to maintain
  • What tools to use to simplify collaboration & maximize reuse

I'll address some of the challenges we've come across writing documentation in AsciiDoc, offer a set of tips and recommendations that have helped us improve our writing flow and provide advice about how to keep presentation from leaking into your content...and why it matters.

Reading and Writing in 20 Years


Information is the “I” in IT. Arguably, the most important topic in human civilization. What's reading and writing going to be like in 20 years? Will we all be communicating in Mandarin, English or Emoji? Will plain text formats be king or will we still be fighting with WYSIWYG editors? The fate of civilization could be in our hands...or rather, our editors.
