While the term documentation typically refers to the process of writing after an event, please note, our handbook has been drafted with the belief that documentation should happen first, e.g. find a solution, document the solution, then announce on GitHub (our single source of truth), which can be shared on Discord. As a team grows, if it's documentation grows with it, efficiency will reign supreme rather than seeing new team members ask and re-ask for the same answers bogging down meetings and disrupting fluid knowledge exchange. On top of that, Athens is a remote-only company that relies on asynchronous culture to unite it's worldwide team. Tools like Discord are meant for limited-retention, informal messaging and quite poor for project management because they easily create knowledge gaps that disrupt team communications due to lacking context and universal accessibility.
