If you’re a software developer, you probably don’t need this book because Dan Allen’s documentation is written for you. This book is written for people who do not have a software development background. It walks them through the process step-by-step. I explain how to use the terminal or command line. Software developers already know that and so most AsciiDoc "how to" docs on the internet don’t cover it.
I write this from the United States and it may be implemented most often in other countries. Free tools open possibilities for entrepreneurs.
I have been able to get these free tools to do all that my expensive commercial authoring tools, content management systems, and publishing tools did for me when making technical documentation using XML for years in Texas.
