1. Front Page Hacker News: Remote Students Make Documentation a Cinch

    There are hundreds of great libraries and APIs out there designed to make developers’ lives better and easier, but poor or nonexistent documentation often undermines the benefit these technologies offer. A team of students in our Remote Beta program sought to remedy this issue that affects software engineers of all experience levels. The result, Sodocan.js, auto-generates skeletal documentation and provides crowdsourcing functions that allow anyone to fill in the gaps. Happy to see such a tool, developers voted Sodocan.js up to the front page of Hacker News.

She works with students on everything from the logistical to the emotional.
