You’re a little ways into your first programming job, and things are getting easier. At first, all the code you had to deal with might have overwhelmed and confused you, but you’re starting to get the hang of it. That’s great! Now you’re wondering how to take the code you write to the next level. While there are lots of things to learn about your programming stack, many of which will make you a better programmer, there are a few that will serve you no matter what stack you work in. One of those is code documentation.
Many developers don’t write enough documentation, either because they don’t see the value or because they feel like they don’t have time. You don’t need to be one of those developers. With a little time and a lot of practice, you can add documentation for your code that makes reading it a joy to use for both you and anyone else who comes along.
