Efficient File Management in a Fast-Moving Agile Environment

Presented By:

Paul Stoecklein, Documentation Director | MadCap Software, Inc.

This Webinar was Recorded on Thursday, 03 December 2020


Webinar Summary

Source control is an essential part of every technical communicator’s daily regimen. Unfortunately, it can also be a source of constant frustration. To ensure the best possible experience—where source control is more of a friend than an enemy—it is important to use a reliable tool as well as a good system for managing files.

In this webinar, MadCap Software Director of Documentation, Paul Stoecklein, will demonstrate how he uses Git coupled with a custom branching workflow to meet the needs of MadCap Software’s own documentation. This system allows for continuous documentation of different features in the same MadCap Flare project, even when some features might ultimately be delayed for later software releases. He will also cover how to handle certain source control issues, tips and tricks for minimizing problems, and daily tasks to keep all members of a documentation team in sync, especially when working in a fast-moving Agile environment.
