According to the application website, Season of Docs:
- Gives open source projects an opportunity to improve their documentation.
- Gives technical writers an opportunity to gain experience in open source.
- Creates a better understanding of metrics and best practices in open source documentation.
A technical writer guide is available to help writers who want to get involved. If your organization is interested in participating, check out the organization administrator guide and responsibilities.
This year’s Season of Docs will also allow open source organizations to apply for a grant based on their documentation needs; for more information, refer to the grants for organizations guide.
