We all know how important documentation is, but it is still the largest problem with most projects I join: Incomplete, out of date, hard to find documentation.

Good documentation is the developer's greatest weapon in the everlasting battle against technical debt. How many parts of your code are overlooked because "I don't know why this is here and I don't want to break anything?"

The talk will cover how to make sure that your documentation is useful to the widest array of people, and how to get the most out of the time you spend writing it.
