[DEVFEST Lille 2022] - Technically speaking improve your code documentation

Par Alexandra White

Quality instructions, informative code comments, detailed READMEs, and smart documentation architecture can make complex codebases accessible to all developers. Documentation is imperative to teaching the next generation of developers, passing work to successors, and helping developers better understand your own work.

When I was an engineer, helpful docs created by my colleagues were critical to quick onboarding and updating older, forgotten projects. Now, as a full time technical writer, I rely on our engineers to be able to concisely explain how features work so I can better communicate with out users. It is essential that everyone (engineers and product included) be empowered to write documentation
