The Business Case for Developer Experience - Caseysoftware
While I’ve made a case for Developer Experience (DevEx) – aptly named The Case for a Great Developer Experience – I realized it was making the case to other developers.

The problem with Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) in documentation
Many tech writers have a heavy disdain for Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) in documentation.
