Documentation is team work, yes – but can you do it collaboratively? Yes, but not in collaborative editing. Git is your friend, a good workflow needs to be chosen, and then everyone on your team may choose the editor he loves. Etherpad, Google Docs and such are tools for short texts, but not for professional editing. In this article for Linux Magazine Germany I explain how we work at SUSE.
For a special edition of Linux Magazine US named Getting Started with Linux I helped creating several articles. I wrote the security article, and my wonderful colleagues at SUSE wrote many of the other texts. This is probably the best way to start a Linux career or experience. Let yourself be guided through the onboarding.
Today I had to get up early (in fact I slept four hours, one at home, one in the train to Nürnberg, one to Würzburg, one to Kassel), because I was invited to represent open source lobby group OSBA and my employer SUSE at certification Institute LPI. In their board meeting with LPI members interesting news was disclosed. Read it soon in Linux-Magazin.
