Open Source ABCs: Documentation

Welcome to Day 11 of our #100DaysOfOSS series. Until October 31, we'll be doing Open Source Software (OSS) terms from A to Z. We'll be diving into a different letter of the English alphabet, uncovering OSS concepts, and sharing our thoughts on them.

Today, we're covering the letter "D" for Documentation.

Documentation: Documentation plays an important role in open-source projects. It includes guidelines, tutorials, and explanations that help users and developers understand and utilize the software effectively.

Now, we want to hear from you! What other OSS terms can you think of that start with the letter "D"?

Remember to use the hashtag #100DaysOfOSS if you share on social media, and don't forget to tag us @saucedopen so we can follow along.

Yes! If you’re coding, you’re definitely debugging.
