The 8 Types of Technical Documentation and Why Each Is Important

However, most creators of software struggle to provide adequate documentation for their product. Rare is the software that is praised for its documentation. When documentation is praised, it is often only praised for having some documentation, which is more than most, but in reality documentation is usually still inadequate. So what constitutes adequate documentation? Well, if a user wants to do something with your software and the documentation helps them succeed in a timely manner, then the documentation is adequate.

Risk Assessment in a Nutshell. Technical Reference Model. Five areas of documentation that need continuous monitoring (The Invisible Thread)

When I first started working on DevOps-related software, continuous monitoring didn't sound like something that was big enough to be one of the pillars of a new software methodology.

Five areas of documentation that need continuous monitoring (The Invisible Thread)

My dev-centric background was part of why I discounted monitoring, but I also figured that if we were already automating things like deployment and testing, wouldn't the tools already record things like test results? Big deal! The most popular thing I've yet written is a series of articles on reporting with Rational Team Concert and Eclipse Business Information and Reporting Tools, and yet I still figured that reporting was something done manually and as needed, not constantly.

Then, early in my DevOps work, I had a long talk with Bill Higgins (@BillHiggins), who at the time was one of the architects in charge of those projects. Accessibility tests. Armarac rackmount rooms from thureon.

Puppet (software) Puppet is a tool designed to manage the configuration of Unix-like and Microsoft Windows systems declaratively.

Puppet (software)

The user describes system resources and their state, either using Puppet's declarative language or a Ruby DSL (domain-specific language). This information is stored in files called "Puppet manifests". Puppet discovers the system information via a utility called Facter, and compiles the Puppet manifests into a system-specific catalog containing resources and resource dependency, which are applied against the target systems. Any actions taken by Puppet are then reported. Puppet consists of a custom declarative language to describe system configuration, which can be either applied directly on the system, or compiled into a catalog and distributed to the target system via client–server paradigm (using a REST API), and the agent uses system specific providers to enforce the resource specified in the manifests. It is model-driven, requiring limited programming knowledge to use.[4]
