“RTFM!” -- Really? Is that how you shame your developers for not reading the entire docs? We all know just giving developers some APIs and the docs doesn’t automatically make developers to build awesome apps on your platform, and this is why we exist. It is too much to expect the developers to just read your docs to build something awesome. In my talk, I focus on developer education and how we should offer learning materials in various styles to support diverse developers.
