Best practices for software development documentation
March 12, 2013 6:06 PM Subscribe
I do some developery-type stuff at work and the more complicated it gets, the less organized I am. I often find myself wondering why I did this or that or what I was trying to accomplish with it. I reuse a lot of the same functions and bits of code but I don't have a good system of keeping track of them. I know about commenting within code, and I do that, but I'm looking for a larger system of general best practices more than a specific solution.

I'm the only one who works on 95% of the stuff I'm doing so these notes are mostly for me right now, but later on it will be very important to be able to communicate Why Things Are The Way They Are and What To Do.
