Everybody knows how important documentation is. However, as important as it is, we often don't give documentation enough attention. Docstrings are incomplete or missing argument explanations, examples don't compile or reveal outdated APIs, tutorials are often idiosynchratic (or not even there). The docathon is about changing that.

The Docathon is like a hackathon but is focused on developing material and tools for documentation. Hackers of all skill levels are welcome. We'll have a kickoff event on the 6th and then a week of hacking and documenting. We hope you'll join us in person or online!
