If You Want Them to RTFM, Make a Better FM

If you’re interested in the conflicts between software and documentation,¬†Alex Lagarde wrote a great post about that: Intent Discovery – Part 1 : the intents behind softwares.

It explains what the different (and conflicting) goals are between the “technical space” (source code), “model space” (design and architecture) and “document space” (what people need to use the software successfully). And he promises some solutions with the new Eclipse project “Intent” (and the second post in the series).
