Course Overview Music Hi everyone. My name is Chris B. Behrens, and welcome to my course, Documenting Detailed Solution Design with Microsoft Azure. I am an independent writer, author, and speaker. Creating documentation is probably the least loved of all the varieties of work that go into a software project, but getting it right can mean the difference between failure and success in the software world. In this course, we're going to take a long, hard look at creating documentation that will actually be used rather than sitting on shelf gathering dust and drifting out of sync with the application. Some of the major topics that we will cover include creating self-documenting code, generating documentation automatically with behavior-driven development, just-in-time documentation, and creating video learning content. By the end of this course, you'll know how to create documentation in forms specific to the target audience and how to make it easy for people to learn with it. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Agile requirements and the software development knowledge that leads to becoming a software architect. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into advanced Agile with courses on behavior-driven development and advanced Agile development. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to create real documentation with the Documenting Detailed Solution Design course, at Pluralsight.
