Bad docs can ruin a project, but great docs draw users and contributors like a magnet. Learn how you can immediately improve your docs. Invest in writing better docs every day for a more inclusive and higher quality project.

It’s hard to contribute to projects that have bad docs. We’ll look at what kind of docs your project exposes and how they can either push contributors away or invite them in. We’ll discuss specific actions you can take immediately to write effective and welcoming docs.

Writing good docs doesn’t have to be hard. You may not realize it but you write them every day, and with just a bit of work you can make them immediately better, and better docs mean a better project.
