Documentation. It’s a scary word to some people, in the context of software or code documentation. There’s a handful of documentation systems out there, with their own advantages and disadvantages. But that’s not what I’m here to talk about. Instead, I’m going to talk about how using each system happens to reflect on the project/the developers, and what to expect in terms of the quality and quantity of the documentation when you find some using a specific system.
About a month ago, Twitter made the very smart move of making it so that nobody can actually use their site.
