Documenting application programming interfaces (APIs) and software development kits (SDKs) is a constantly growing field. The supply always exceeds the demand of writers who have the skills to succeed in this challenging, rewarding niche. During this webinar, Ed Marshall, an expert in API/SDK documentation, will introduce you to this field and the skills you need to shine. The topics he will cover are:

  • The level of programming knowledge you should know to be successful.
  • How much information you can gather from reading code and where to go for additional details.
  • The two most common tools used in API/SDK documentation – Doxygen and Javadoc.

Ed will also show examples of real-world APIs and demonstrate how Doxygen and Javadoc work. Both tools extract software developers’ comments from the code and formats the comments into an online help format.
