Evolution of TC 2021 

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the Evolution of TC 2021 virtual conference for our talk A Complete Docs as Code Workflow — A Case Study of the platformOS Developer Portal


We are thrilled to have received overwhelmingly positive feedback to our presentation. Attendees shared that they had found the session very insightful and engaging with one person noting that they’d never understood docs as code as well as they do now since attending. In sharing our experience we hope to help others on their journey of building effective developer documentation sites, so it was rewarding and reaffirming to hear our audience found it insightful.

Onboarding 

As part of our Developer Education Program, we are working on a new way to onboard users to platformOS.


So far, users could start onboarding on the platformOS Partner Portal and documentation, where we provided comprehensive journeys to the three main segments of our target audience: non-technical, semi-technical, and technical users. Users could also select if they’d like to start from scratch or use the pOS Marketplace Template as the starting point.


Now, we are experimenting with a more interactive approach that leads the user through the journeys step by step, keeping track of the progress, and providing assistance and support at each step if needed. We are starting the test runs of this new approach this week, so if you’re new to platformOS and would like to participate, please let us know.
