Consider this scenario:

  • you are the product owner of Siete Baracos (a tool that helps people with coffee measurements and ingredients)
  • how will you inform the designers, developers, testers about the basic technical information of the product?
  • thru a Technical Document, of course!

So here’s the basic format of the document:

  • Purpose: Brochure


  • Primary Device: Desktop Computer
  • Secondary Device: iPad

  • Primary Device: Samsung Galaxy Y
