Why Is Documentation Important?

There are two general types of software documentation: user instructions and system documentation. User instructions generally assist people who need to use or administer an application. System documentation is a resource for developers who need to make functional changes to a system. This chapter focuses on techniques for creating system documentation for FileMaker-based projects and covers a wide range of ways in which a developer can make a solution easier and more systematic to understand. Documentation for us goes far beyond an external document explaining various functions of your system: Elements of documentation are interwoven throughout one’s database from commenting to naming conventions.
