Documentation is the constant burden of many a computer professional – but why? Because it is for-the-most-part a static, legacy reporting system.
The usefulness of documentation is undoubted when dealing with other professions, but the curse is that it needs to be maintained. And in a fast changing environment – like in the computer industry – documentation needs to be dynamic.
Spreadsheets should update themselves for example. Have you ever seen a correct server list?
So please please, file static documentation with telephone directories – in the bin 🙂
