Community Presentation


With the tremendous growth of the Python ecosystem, attracting an ever-wider audience of users with a variety of backgrounds and experience levels, it is more critical than ever that its documentation better serve the needs of its diverse array of readers. We formally introduce the Python Docs Community—the self-organized, Python Steering Council-endorsed collective working toward this goal—and provide a look at the major user-facing improvements implemented, underway and coming soon for the core documentation, devguide, PEPs and more.

Along the way, we'll share the key insights and lessons learned from our ongoing projects, and how they can help you improve the documentation of your own projects. And if this sounds like something you might want to be a part of, we'll share how you can engage with us and your fellow documentarians through our community platforms and resources.
