Maidenhead, UK, 05 August 2013. docfacto, a software start-up that is developing tools for developers that take the ‘too hard’ out of documentation and help businesses eliminate documentation debt, today announced its membership of the Eclipse Foundation as a Solutions Member.

“We are excited about joining the Eclipse Foundation and the opportunity to support and be part of the Eclipse community.  Aligning ourselves with the Eclipse Foundation was a no brainer for us, as our current product offering focuses on Java and Eclipse, with a number of our products already available as Eclipse plugins. We are looking forward to being involved in the Eclipse community,” said Simon Jones, CEO and co-founder.

“As developers we understand that documentation is usually painful for developers but we also know that up to date and relevant documentation is vital for the business. We have developed our tools to bridge that gap, starting from the perspective that the code is the source of truth but that tools that cause developers to leave their IDE to create documents is counter-productive,” explains Darren Hudson, CTO and co-founder of docfacto.

docfacto will be launching their tool set onto the Eclipse Market place this week and are keen to engage with new users to help them develop their roadmap, iron out any bugs and talk to developers and companies on their views on solving documentation debt. If you are interested in talking to docfacto you can email them at ideas@docfacto.com.
