Why the Django Documentation Sucks

A session at DjangoCon US 2011

Wednesday 7th September, 2011

3:30pm to 4:10pm

Documentation is normally held to be one of Django's strong points. Steve attempts to point out that even the best can stand improvement.

As someone who had to learn Django primarily from the documentation, the author was glad that the documentation existed, but it seemed to make assumptions of knowledge that weren't necessarily in his head at the time. It was therefore a frustrating enough experience to result in this talk, which looks at some of the ways that the Django documentation could be made more user-friendly and effective.
