How to launch your startup with good docs


Just because there’s pressure to get the product out the door, doesn’t mean there’s no time to think about documentation. It’s one of the first things that beta users and investors ask for. But how do you build documentation at the same time as your product on a tight startup timeline of only a few months?

In this talk, I’ll describe my methodology for getting documentation up and running at early-stage tech startups that have focused more on shipping than documenting. I’ll discuss how I assessed the current state of the docs, set documentation requirements with the team, harmonized the various moving parts of the product into a coherent narrative, and led the team to ship a fully-functional documentation system in time for the first release.
