SDK Documentation

softwareDevelopers depend on software development kit (SDK) documentation, providing quality SDK documentation builds confidence in your APIs, services, applications, and ultimately, your brand.

Using documentation to encourage the adoption of an SDK

Most third-party developers need the SDK to help them get started with a project. The technical writers at InfoPros create SDK documentation that is easy to understand, thus improving the chances of third-party developers adopting your APIs, services, and products.

Clear and comprehensive documentation is key to wide acceptance and adoption of your SDK platform.

The most common deficiency of SDK documentation are gaps in information. Quality SDK documentation gives developers confidence in the API, SDK, the service, and your brand. If third-party developers do not understand what the SDK can do or how to utilize the APIs, services, and products correctly, the quality of your SDK will not matter. The best way to improve and promote your SDK during the software development life cycle (SDLC) is to provide your customers with complete, quality documentation.

Your InfoPros project team works efficiently to create current, concise, high-quality SDK documentation, thus improving and managing your SDKs to keep them on the cutting edge.

InfoPros creates quality SDK documentation with the following characteristics/effects:
  • Provides an overview of the SDK’s features, resources, and toolsets
  • Makes it easy for developers to write code that interfaces with your APIs, services, and products
  • Is interactive; includes API calls directly from the documentation
  • Includes references with descriptions of the APIs and services
  • Details error codes and their descriptions
  • Reaches the target audience
  • Clearly defines use cases
  • Reduces developer support calls

 

Clear, Easy-To-Use, Quality SDK Documentation

Make Your SDK Documentation Available Online

Much of the SDK documentation available today is created in Microsoft Word and delivered as PDFs, which is an inefficient medium for developers to find answers fast. InfoPros will provide the best solution for all your SDK documentation needs, including the migration or upgrade of your current documentation, creating static online documentation within an online help system, or by setting up interactive SDK documentation via Apiary, ReadMe.io or Swagger.

Why Developers Should Not Write SDK Documentation

We focus on the quality of the documentation, your developers focus on the quality of the SDK.

InfoPros helps keep your engineers and developers creating and improving your SDKs. Often SDK software developers write and maintain SDK documentation and, for several reasons, this is rarely successful. Software developers know how to write code, not documentation. They are normally untrained in writing concise, easy-to-understand documentation for a wide audience. In addition, the developers of the SDK know the code so thoroughly it is difficult for them to write documentation that translates well to developers who may be new to using their code.

Without quality SDK documentation, underutilization of your SDK can occur. InfoPros takes on your developers’ SDK documentation workload, delivers the quality, and free up their time for further SDK development.
