    Documenting APIs & SDKs

    Manuel Gordon of Gordon & Gordon presents his highly acclaimed modular workshops on documenting APIs.

    Documenting APIs & SDKs
    Perhaps one of today's most sought-after skills in technical writing is the ability to document APIs and SDKs. The aim of this intensive 1-day modular workshop is to enable you to work with software developers and create useful documentation for Software Development Kits and Application Programming Interfaces.

    Just Enough C and C++
    Working just in C or C++, then you can attend the Just Enough C and C++ Modular Workshop, and avoid listening to all those boring (and perhaps) irrelevant Java questions!.

    Just Enough Java
    Working just in Java, then maybe the Just Enough Java Modular Workshop is the one for you.

    Understanding Complex Software
    Looking below the Surface....
    If you're working on a complex software project, you need to understand what's going on below the user interface. And there's a lot going on down there!!
    Scratch below the surface of any big system and you quickly find clients and servers, controls and widgets, middleware and middle-tiers and n-tiers, classes and objects and instances, methods, properties, functions and procedures, COM and COBRA and ActiveX, Web services and application services, and yes: UNIX systems even have daemons!
