As developers build new libraries and tools, they sometimes write documentation as an afterthought, or not at all. Poor or missing documentation can prevent a library from being adopted, and can also be the sign of a poor API.
This talk will look at the idea of documenting first, as a means of driving development. Documentation upfront means you end up with better documentation and better-designed APIs, which are two key elements to a library being heavily adopted.
