Documentation by Stack Overflow

Kevin Montrose of Stack Overflow explaining Documentation:

Documentation is community-curated, example-focused developer documentation, based on the principles of Stack Overflow.

A natural extension to Stack Overflow and a welcome one. I should likely make this my homepage.

Stripe’s API documentation

Stripe has had best-of-breed API documentation for the last several years. They’ve just made it even better with a “quickstart tour” that works wonderfully.

Anyone documenting an API should look very closely at what Stripe has done. Much of their success is very likely due to them caring about their docs.
