Your software is as good as its documentation. Even if it's a truism, it's worth remembering, especially when creating a SaaS solution with self-service capabilities and versatile APIs, or when building open-source (no, README.md in your GitHub is not sufficient).

Big tech companies know it very well. They invest significant money in creating and maintaining their documentation. They use dedicated tooling and have teams to build it. But what about startups? They are usually focused on building the product and acquiring customers. In this post, I give you my opinionated guide on how to create world-class documentation without investing.

Believe me, you can't afford to have bad documentation!

It is my ambition to say in ten sentences what others say in a whole book.

It's been three weeks since co.brick released the report: "Preliminary diagnosis of the Silesian startup system" (can be downloaded here). The report was discussed with representatives of the ecosystem, mostly representing technology clusters and local government. Therefore it was discussed mostly from that angle, but how about the local founders? I think that their perspective was missing and in this post, I will try to highlight some of the challenges they are facing.
