AgileTheDocs Presentation Slides and Notes (5th Dec 2016, London)

The lovely people at GDS, in association with Write the Docs, put on a great one day mini-conference, Agile the Docs, on 5th December in London.  I was asked to present on whether documentation was in the definition of done and I was more than happy to oblige.

Without further ado, here are the slides I used, and here are the notes (I haven't done a lot of editing or formatting on the notes; the links below contain everything I talked about in a more comprehensive - and formatted - way).

If you're interested in learning more about this topic then check out the following articles:

Thank you to Trisha, Rosalie, Jen and Lydia from GDS, and Kristof from Writer the Docs.  You organised a short, sharp, interesting conference with interesting and diverse speakers, in a good location, at a sensible time, near a decent pub and a tube station.  Top work all round.

On a side note, the BRDC were having a benefit lunch/gala thing in the same conference centre we were, and this was parked outside:

It's an impressive machine in the flesh. And I saw Nigel Mansell in the corridor, which was pretty cool.  He looks exactly the same as he did when he won the F1 championship 24 years ago (except for the 'tashe, which went a few years back.)Exactly the same. Either he's aged very well or he looked a lot older than his years when he was an F1 driver.

Anyway, Agile the Docs.  Really enjoyed it and looking forward to attending the next one. If you've got questions or thoughts on the presentation use the comments below or tweet me @agiledoc.
