Gardening Open Docs


With about 1000 different editors each month, the Mozilla Developer Network (MDN) documentation Web site for Open Web technologies is a trafficked wiki with edits of all kind of quality: perfect text from seasoned professional writers to rough notes by teen-aged technology learners.

In this talk, we are going to explore how to keep this doc garden clean, how the diversity of editors influence its evolution, and how we find our way through treacherous jungles to well-maintained royal gardens.

This is about improving quality, working with diverse communities, fostering innovation, and carnivorous plants.
