Auckland Branch Event - Creating tech comms in an Agile environment

Our development teams often work in an Agile iterative environment, such as Scrum, delivering value every few weeks. How can we create documentation that our customers value, at the same pace without compromising on quality? How can we collaborate with our development teams to help us all understand our contribution better?

In this talk, Gareth Holebrook will take you through the benefits of an iterative approach and how it can support us in delighting our customers while providing minimal viable documentation and avoiding mini-waterfall.
