Creating documentation is much more than just putting pen to paper. It's an outpouring of one's mind and soul onto a canvas. This is a challenging enough endeavor in private, and becomes increasingly difficult when writing is done in a collaborative environment where any team member can see, critique, and even alter your work.

This talk explores the challenges and power in opening up your creative process to collaboration with others.


Together, we'll explore the difficulties we'll encounter working in a collaborative environment. We'll understand how we're affected by these challenges and layout ways to overcome these obstacles to do our best work.
