From the point of view of a developer working on a new
project, it would be the requirements/specification for
the project. From the point of view of a developer
working with a new tool, i.e., an SDK, it would be the
user/API doc for the tool. So the answer would depend
on whether you're being considered for a job documenting
tools being *used* by the company's developers or tools
being *written* by them for someone else to use.

I had a telephone interview with a major corporation for a technical editing

job yesterday. One of the questions I was asked was, "What is the single most

important documentation for a software developer?" I answered that I didn't

know, but thought it might well be the documentation for the APIs or for the

operating system.

I don't think the question was vital to the interview, but I'm not sure. The

job was one for which the hiring manager thought I might be qualified. It was

not a job to which I had directly applied, and the job *is* for technical

editing of developer's tools.
