We are a group of humble, but amazing developers with one thing in common: we're all west of somewhere else. Where we differ from similar sites: we talk to each other! Often. At conferences, via email, and on Slack. From Docker to Canadian politics to feature toggles to smoked meat, we're never at a loss for words. We blog, talk, write, and present. Thanks for stopping by.

How much is enough documentation?
David Wesst
Documentation is important, but it takes a lot of time and if you are a solo developer, what documentation to you really need? Still, good docs can provide the context I forget after putting a project on the shelf, or explains how to fix something in older code I use, but haven't touched in a long time. So how much is 'enough' documentation and what types of documentation do I need to invest in give my future self the the best value for the effort I put in?
