Project and Team Documentation
It doesn't take long for your code to outlive your development team. Handoff is too late for your developers to start documenting what they did and why. Plus, many developers hate writing documentation, and it's not easy to do. Poor technical documentation can cause a drop in productivity, especially at crisis points like losing or adding team members.
At the same time, you don't need to document everything. You need to document the right things. I'll write accurate, clear, and concise minimum viable documentation (MVD) for your project so that:
- Your developers stay focused on what they do best: developing your platform.
- Productivity doesn't drop when someone leaves or joins the team.
- People can find and understand the information they need, when they need it.
- It's easier to scale up and add staff quickly.
A one-page README can drive development and help people understand your project. Revising code comments helps keep your code readable for fresh eyes. Collecting team chat discussions and editing them into a wiki creates an instant support document. There are many options between nothing and too much. I'll help you find the right mix of project documentation for your team.
