The inception of Snorkell.ai began with a pain point faced by one of its Co-Founders, Suman Saurabh:

"Before ChatGPT, I was coding in Rust at Microsoft, facing a big headache because there was no documentation. I ended up Googling every single line. To make life easier for anyone who'd come after me, I started adding lots of comments in the code. It was a basic fix, but it got me thinking about making things better." 

Saurabh's experience highlights a common pain point for developers - the lack of comprehensive and up-to-date documentation. Despite advancements like GitHub Copilot, which provides code suggestions, the generation of thorough documentation remained a challenge. Saurabh recognized the need for a tool that integrates directly with GitHub and focuses on automating the creation of detailed documentation. This realization led to the birth of Snorkell.ai.
