“When explaining a command, or language feature, or hardware widget, first describe the problem it is designed to solve.” [David Martin, Norristown, Pennsylvania]


From my point of view the minimum requirement of an IT documentation is having a proper

  1. System Handbook, telling an IT savvy third person how to install and to configure your application, and a proper

  2. User Handbook, telling one or more users with specified knowledge how to use your application.

For an example please refer to my application sbDatastats (read the pdf document).
