Why do developers seem to be allergic to writing documentation? Especially for projects they wrote. Nobody else understands it as much as they do... 😕

@rage Probably because writing documentation is boring and hard and goes out of date really fast, not that it's an excuse, but I think that's the reason.

@rage Writing documentation, and writing code are two separate skills. Software developers write code almost every day, but few have ever practiced writing documentation or blog posts.
