Yes! Very important aspect!

Technical writing has always been very under-rated, but very critical. Documenting any workflow, API or algorithm helps us reason with our own assumptions and removes inconsistencies and biases.

In the open source world, documentation has the added benefit of getting new contributors interested in the project. It's also much easier to raise your first PR for a documentation fix than for an actual bug.
