A New DevPortal Findability Experience: Holon Discovery

About the talk:

The feeling that a developer gets while navigating a DevPortal can create a learning environment, a different way to approach documentation through UX and dynamic interactions. An important part of this experience is the search and discovery of documentation, that can be boosted through design and innovation. Empathy is going to share the strategy and process behind the new discovery experience in Empathy Platform Docs, an evolving and self organizing system where each category is simultaneously a whole and part of something bigger.
