Documentation as Code

Documentation as Code makes it first class citizen while developing Documentation as code states that you store the documentation of your project/service at the same location where you store you code. This has some clear advantages: You don’t need to search for you documentation, everybody is aware where it is and how to extend it You can update the documentation for an issue in the same pull/merge-request where you make the respective technical changes.
