It is suitable for multiple styles of documentation, including API documentation.
## Why you should use this template
It promotes consistency on technical documentation which should reassure end users.
It helps technical writers manage their technical content using the [‘docs as code’][docs-as-code-blog] approach.
## Who should use this template
The Tech Docs Template is for internal use by the GDS and government community.
