Creating documentation for the African audience.




They say good docs save lives—your users, developers, and consumers— regardless of the form they come in, be it contents, tutorial pieces, or documentation. Also, with an understanding of the market and your audience, these pieces of content can tell stories, attract people, and inspire venture capitalists to invest. When done right, the reward is massive, and Africa is no exception.

But why aren't African startups doing more of this? The African tech ecosystem is rocketing, and venture capitalists are taking notice. Could it be a short-sighted view? Time constraints and money? Or is it the uniqueness of the African audience?

For this talk, we spoke with a few African startups to learn how they approach documentation and content creation, their challenges, focuses, and how they tell their stories.
