Documentation changes are constantly making older links problematic
If I step away for a fortnight I have difficulty repeating the step-by-step exercises. The subject is so vast that naturally there are forks on the way but it gets challenging with the newer distractions.
There has to be better documentation somewhere? Even the Blinky tutorial has rich features that are "undocumented?" Why?
I agree. I'm on page 5 of my own notes and have only flashed, booted, config'd (more or less) the IoT OS to a rpi3. It's a beautiful thing, but I'm not flashing any LEDs yet.
Setup was meh. I have a Smart Pi Touch and a logitech k380. After boot, it took several attempts to bluetooth my keyboard, but wifi was snappy.:)
The experience was good and the result was far better than my attempt at the OS since last year.
Next step was to ssh. Well, of all things, password issues got me. I had not remembered from the dashboard config install and, ... time to reflash.
Step One, step two, then to step 100 if required. Each step for setup requires way more than one sentence. But documentation is hard, really hard. And having it in one place would be nice.
We all need documentation teams who are creative and who are use case fanaticals. And they need their editors, or at least some loving ai who do nightly link checks. ;)
I'm thinking of doing a presentation to my rpi sig next month. So, ya, docs would be nice.
