  • Holidays Monday - Wednesday
  • Read When Not to Comment: Questions and Tradeoffs with API Documentation for C++ Projects(https://andrewhead.info/assets/pdf/when-not-to-comment.pdf)
    • "Robillard and DeLine interviewed and surveyed developers about learning obstacles, recommending that common obstacles could be avoided if the intent of an API is documented, code examples cover non-trivial use cases and best practices, and documentation helps developers find API elements for their tasks, understand relevant parts of APIs’ internal behavior, and avoids fragmentation"
    • Researchers grouped developers questions into: "how to do something, what code does, why it is behaving the way it is, finding where something is, who did something, and when they did it"
    • "Recent research has proposed tools for automatically improving documentation. Such tools synthesize code examples [6, 21], generate method [19, 35] and parameter descriptions [36], mine API usage patterns (e.g., [20, 40]), collect insightful sentences describing APIs [37], and identify improvable documentation [39, 41]."
    • "Distrust of documentation could lead to unnecessary searches: S6 visited the implementation to check for unexpected behavior when “it was actually documented properly, but I didn’t believe it.”
