Documentation conference sessions

1:30pm–5:00pm Tuesday, 07/17/2012
Are you tired of null pointer exceptions, SQL injections, concurrency errors, mistaken equality tests, and other run-time errors? A compile-time tool named the Checker Framework has found hundreds of such errors in Java code. Come learn how you can use the tool to improve your own code. For those who don't use Java, we will explain the concept of pluggable type-checking that underlies the tool.
11:00am–11:40am Friday, 07/20/2012
You know the drill - prototype, code, test, docs. The last part of the chain is either omitted or will rot in Wikis and manuals. This session introduces what Neo4j did to get O'Reilly quality DocBook content out of the codebase without getting in the way of the developers and extending the amount of docs from JavaDoc to PDF-book quality.
