Getting Started Overview

UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Experience League is Adobe’s official destination focused on the Adobe enterprise solutions where everyone comes to learn, receive support, and participate in the communities. It centralizes all of the self-help courses, how-to videos, troubleshooting tips and tricks and official product documentation for all of Adobe’s enterprise solutions.

We, the Experience League team, believe that it takes a village and welcome anyone who wants to help make our customers succesful by sharing product knowledge.

Welcome.

Let’s Get Started

Let’s start with you. What type of content creator are you?

  • Documentation Team - You write product documentation, your job title is technical writer or something similar.
  • Experience League Content Team - You are an expert in one or more Adobe Enterprise products, you record how-to videos, tutorials, and self-guided courses.
  • Occasional Content Creator - You have subject matter expertise that you want to share, but your official role at Adobe is not 100% focused on content creation. You are likely a product manager, consultant, or maybe part of the customer care team.
  • Occasional Content Contributor - You are not creating content, but rather you have existing content that should be hosted on Experience League, like an event recording, or an existing set of product how-to videos.

There are some common tasks that all roles will need to know. There are also additional things you will want to know depending on your area of focus.

Let’s cover some of the basics of the systems and then show you were to go next.

System Basics

All content that is added to Experience League is created using markdown (file extension - .md) and then stored in GitHub. GitHub is a hosted, version-controlled repository for Experience League authored content. The content that you will be creating is written in markdown, which is a very lightweight markup language used to create formatted text.

The benefits of this system?

  • Highly Portable Content The content is separated from the presentation, and thus can be syndicated and formatted to suit the destination. A good example of this would be content that appears on experienceleague.adobe.com and that same content appears within an Adobe product.
  • Localization Once content is posted to Experience League, it is quickly localized to 12 languages using machine translation.
  • Collaboration Anyone, including customers, can file bugs and make corrections to our public documentation, Adobe needs to approve these changes, but it allows for a more collaborative model to ensure our content is accurate and current.

If you would like a more in-depth overview or a workflow demo, contact Bob Bringhurst through Slack or email.

Getting Started Guides

There is a lot of information in this authoring guide, but not all of it applies to you.
We have created role-specific Getting Started guides that highlight the key assets, resources and tools outlined in the Experience League authoring guide which will help be successful in your role.
