The Open Guide to AWS is an open source writing project, which over the past year has become one of the most popular AWS resources on the web. It’s both a written resource on GitHub, with over 100 contributors, and a large Slack group. Each has become a forum for trading practical knowledge not covered in standard documentation. In this session, we talk about the Guide and how it started, share lessons on seeding initial content, the editorial process, and how to foster a healthy extended community and encourage social engagement.
This session is part of the re:Invent Developer Community Day, six community-led sessions where AWS enthusiasts share technical insights on trending topics based on first-hand experiences and knowledge shared within local AWS communities.
