Conference Talk Documentation


Thiago Sueto


Many resources exist detailing the ins and outs of technical documentation, yet most are concerned with practices done in enterprise environments, leaving open source—and its anarchic/do-ocratic collaboration style—in the background.

This talk explains the different ways in which KDE handles documentation and summarizes the relevant content found in multiple technical documentation books to serve as a general metrics for what KDE should be striving for in its documentation.


I have worked as a translator of academic papers in the past and I am currently a documentation contractor for KDE focusing on onboarding documentation.

I'm a jack-of-all-trades who ventured through most areas of KDE over the course of four years and is acquainted with the good and the bad in their onboarding process, making this my specialty.
