A couple of days ago, I was reading Jim Mckeeth’s blog post about setting up a Delphi documentation wiki. Now while I admire Jim’s drive and determination about anything Delphi, and I like his idea, there’s one sentence I don’t agree with.
”At first I was thinking Embarcadero could hire a tech writer to copy edit the content from the questions into the Wiki, but that is just passing the buck.”
Any why shouldn’t Embarcadero properly document their own product? They are the ones making money from Delphi, aren’t they? I’m all for community input, but that shouldn’t let Embarcadero shirk their responsibilities. I guess Jim, like many others has just given up ever getting decent documentation, and taken matters into his own hands.
Hand’s up those who have given up on the F1 key when working in the Delphi IDE?
