Thank you Bex.
Yes, that seems to be the type of content we're looking for.

True. It can be challenging for some people. That's partly because the guides (and
docs) are missing or outdated. Sadly, there are no people to fix that (sorry). Any help is
On the other hand, we expect the developers themselves to create and maintain the
Developer Portal content, so some level of experience (with git, Markdown, etc.) is
expected. Alternatively you can gain the experience in the process, as we'll gladly
help you with the PRs.

From my POV updating already existing content is quite easy. Please let me know what you
consider complex in doing so, because we really need to make it simple and
Adding a completely new content can be hard, because (as of now) you need to build and
view the website locally, and that is not fully automated yet. There are some help
scripts, READMEs, and tools in our repositories though (that's missing in the
contributing guide too :/) and we're on irc (#developer-portal @Freenode) if you run
into some obstacles.
Note that the PR above adds a content, that IMHO is documentation-like, which is a NO-GO
for Developer Portal, so that needs to be fixed too (not to mention the Markdown there
needs quite a bit of polishing, which I do not consider complex at all).
