This post describes how the mobile team at Blacklane works with documentation. We don’t claim that writing a documentation makes everyone’s work better however the documentation we write and maintain definitely makes our own work better and easier. When you do something long enough, you can see how your practice evolves along with your progress. As of the time of this writing we know what is it like when:
- your app has close to 100% documentation coverage
- when every team member understands the value of documentation and has good technical writing skills
- when in almost every case it is enough to find an answer to a question outside of your direct expertise without asking other team members.
We got there as a team and now we want to share our practice and insights to the developer community.
