Documentation Sounds Like an Annoying, Boring Thing
Maybe you feel that documenting the project or your code is an extra annoying step. Often, documentation for projects is outdated and irrelevant.

It takes time to write a quality manual, but it’s worth it because it solves many problems at once, including slow onboarding processes, slow communication, single-person projects, and lack of team support.
