Subject:Downsizing documentation From:Jay Cherniak <CHERNJC1_at_TEAPOST -at- TEOMAIL -dot- JHUAPL -dot- EDU> Date:Tue, 21 Feb 1995 11:01:40 EST
A month or so ago there was a thread on what to do if your boss orders you
to reduce documentation by 80 percent.
I thought it would be of interest to share that at the 42nd Annual STC
Conference in Washington, D.C., this April, there is a panel discussion on just
that issue. The panelists are all from Microsoft Corp., and they will relate
their experiences of reducing documentation by 90 percent.
