Season of Docs is happy to announce that all eight of the 2019 long-running documentation projects have finished successfully!

The successful long-running documentation projects are (in alphabetical order):

Congratulations to the technical writers and organization mentors on these successful projects!

During the program, technical writers spent a few months working closely with an open source community. They brought their technical writing expertise to improve the project's documentation while the open source projects provided mentors to introduce the technical writers to open source tools, workflows, and the project's technology.

The technical writers and their mentors did a fantastic job with the inaugural year of Season of Docs! Participants in the 2019 program represented countries across all continents except for Antarctica!

You can view a list of the 44 successfully completed technical writing projects and read their project reports on the Season of Docs website.

What’s next?

Program participants should expect an email in the next few weeks about how to get their Season of Docs 2019 t-shirt (sure to be a collector’s item)!

If you’re interested in participating in a future Season of Docs, stay tuned for more information shortly—watch for posts on this blog and sign up for the announcements email list.
