Documentation is one of the big things on my list to start tackling soon. Dancer's documentation has a lot of great information, but it’s not always the easiest to find. I’d like to improve the organization of the information we have, and provide more in the way of examples (via the cookbook and tutorial, among other places) for developers of all skills levels.

I have looked into making a more extensive tutorial as well. It would be great to show users how to grow smaller apps into larger ones, and help demonstrate what the Dancer devs recommend as best practices for new users.

As far as the advent calendar goes, I think it’s a great way for us to showcase some of the finer points of Dancer and its community.

So, please, send us your ideas for improving the docs. Send us your recipes for the cookbook. We want our docs to be second to none :)

The Advent hits might be more important, with people needing deep understanding, and thinking about the content (or not!). I suspect that hit counts do not tell us much. Do you know how long people stay on an Advent page? How many are referred from Google vs someones blog vs organic (bookmarks, or the address bar)?
