Totally agree. What can be done or have you seen done in the open source space? Volunteers, little time and rush can overlook good documentation. At first I thought it was me when going through OS apps and having a difficult time implementing or learning as a newbie. Thanks for this and it needs to be more mainstream reading!
Dave, totally understand the pressure on open source docs. I think its worth noting that contribution to open source docs is contribution to open source. It doesn't necessarily have to be code you contribute.
Usually, my first thing with any project (OSS or internal company) are fixes to the ReadMe... there's always something to add.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
