    Mhmmmm no, information always in the docs but when there is some error like "MangoException: Not Enough mangos in my stomach Line 1337" i yeet that shit into duckduckgo and stackoverflow is often the first that pops up and often has the solution.

    I visited stackoverflow intentionally last week. First time I’ve needed to in years.

    Turns out I didn’t need to and what I needed was in the docs. I felt silly.

    if the documentation is good, i don't really look elsewhere. I've been checking numpy for instance and it's really clear with use examples and everything

    There should be a queue for when you’re working with niche obscure closed source software with a barely existent documentation. Mmmh… maybe it should just be a rope 😬

    No wonder. Sometimes SO is straight to the point. It saves time.

    If every tool’s documentation would be more useful and helpful than SO, SO wouldn’t have existed.
