Talk description

APIs are the digital face of the company and Documentation is the Foundation to a Good Developer Experience! However, how to create sensible API documentation and Product documentation is always a harder problem to solve. Vanji will explore, compare, and contrast this in this session with examples. The developer portal is the first pitstop for any API consumers to explore, discover, and consume the APIs. Over the time APIs are moved from the Digital face of the organization to money-making products for the organization. However, there are different audiences in the consumption of this paradigm. Therefore, Vanji will explore, compare, and contrast the difference between API documentation and Product documentation. Further, he also will walk you through with real-world examples of how documentation plays a critical role in the organization.
