I don't disagree that Drupal's docs are all over the place (as well as its whole ecosystem, but that's another debate), but the API doc section at least shows some consistent structure, and I think that's what the OP was looking for.

I found Drupal's documentation pretty terrible when I tried to use it to learn how to build a site. There were introductory docs that described the various components of the system, and advanced docs for experienced developers, but no solid sample project to bridge the gap between the two.

Not to single Drupal out for criticism, that's a very common problem with developer docs.
