The daily TECHWR-L Jobs/Events/Announcements email contained an announcement
(ad) for a workshop-on-DVD from Third Wave Studios on the topic of
"Documenting APIs and SDKs" (see excerpted ad and link below for more info).
This sounds like a product that might be worth buying for our small doc
dept., but I thought I'd solicit any opinions/reviews first. Has anyone seen
this DVD (or attended the in-person workshop), or have any knowledge of, or
opinions about, similar products from Third Wave Studios? Any feedback
