abarbarian Posted June 18, 2015 Share Posted June 18, 2015 Dan Allen and Sarah White: (2015) One of the essential draws to open source software should be superior product documentation. Well-written user guidelines are a key strategy that software developers should use to increase an open source project's growth and user adoption. All too often, programmers finish their last line of code and shove the open source software out the door -- or, more realistically, post it on their website waiting for users to flock to its greatness. Documentation is often an afterthought -- or the software developer does not think about it at all. A pair of open source entrepreneurs are determined to help software developers solve the problem of poorly done or missing documentation. Dan Allen and Sarah White are coleads of the Asciidoctor Project and cofounders of OpenDevise. Allen is a software developer and community catalyst; White works on the documentation for the Asciidoctor project. Any one who helps to get better documentation for open source projects deserves a medal. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
