Documenting ExpressionEngine with Erik Reagan

Aug 19, 2011

EE Podcast

A new episode of The ExpressionEngine Podcast is available for your listening pleasure! And it is lucky number 50, which is just impressive in and of itself (tip o' the hat to the podcast's original hosts Ryan Irelan and Dan Benjamin for getting it all started).

In the latest episode, Lea and I talk with Erik Reagan of Focus Lab, LLC about documenting ExpressionEngine for the developer.

Episode #50

While we often document sites for our clients (or employers), that's not the kind of documentation we talked about with Erik. Instead, Erik schooled us on tips and tools for documenting ExpressionEngine for ourselves … the developers (and any other developers who may work on the project now or in the future).

Erik talked to us about the types of information he documents, when he starts the documentation process and the tools he uses to maintain and share his documentation.

The Coolest Person I Know

Emily Lewis

Yeah, that would be me: .

I'm a freelance web designer of the standardista variety, which means I get excited about things like valid POSH, microformats and accessibility. I ply my trade from my one-person design studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico 87106 USA.

A Blog Not Limited is my personal blog where I pontificate about web design, web standards, semantics and whatever else strikes my fancy. Head on over to Emily Lewis Design if you'd like to see my work or, even better, hire me.
