API Documentation, Developer Advocacy and Drupal Development

Products & Services
Location: E142

API documentation is tough…really tough. However, it is quite necessary, epically if you ever expect someone to use it. And if some of those users happen to gather together to share thoughts and ideas you may just end up with a, “community”. Now as frightfully exciting as this might be, Don’t Panic. Phil has made a large number of mistakes and is willing to share them with you.

Some of the overwhelmingly stimulating topics may include:

  • How to organize a complex API in an even more complex way using Taxonomy
  • Advocating for customers(or how to annoy developers)
  • Over complicating Drupal deployments
  • Fine tuning your filter for maximum transparency

This session is sponsored by SoftLayer
