Testing Documentation

Ever struggled with outdated documentation which was possibly wrong to begin with? You test your components, you test the integration between services, but what about everything that you write about your software? There are approaches to testing documentation, but they are either cumbersome or too simple to be used at a larger scope. Having struggled with building an approach to improve the quality of the technical documentation for Padrino.

In this talk, I'd like to both give an overview of the current state of the art of testable documentation approaches as well as discussing their shortcomings. I will also touch some of the problems that make writing such systems hard and also try to give pointers to possible solutions.
