Knowledge Base Overview
Why a Knowledge Base (KB)
Whenever you stumble upon something that makes you curious you have to do some research, right? That is probably the reason you landed here. Same for me; however, sometimes for me this launches a full blown investigation. Most of the time I also want to keep it for later. Hence, I write it down.
Protect my knowledge
You will never know when you might need it again and especially if you still remember everything correctly. Another good part about writing down stuff in your own words (as opposed to copy/paste or just links and bookmarks) is, that you have to think about the topic in different ways. Writing down and publishing these things forces me to go deeper than what I actually needed. If forces me to have a better understanding about certain things.
Share my failures
So, most of this information is therefore written and based upon my experience—failed experiments, if you will. Things I learned the hard way. It is not about killing time and writing a complete story about something. It is about little individual things I had to research, learn and understand. Instead of keeping it to myself I will share it here. I hope it will come in handy for me and some of you, too.
Where you find what
The articles are grouped in main topics which themselves will have different areas. Think of it as my notes in different binders with tabbed separators, or books with chapters.
Following is a list of links to some main topics. The main topics will have further links to chapters and the documents in them.
I am working on a search box and function but for the time being you will have to browse through the chapters. It is not a lot yet anyways.
Note that some articles may appear in more than just one location. In my web site's framework I am able to share articles among different pages.
Also note that this will never be a complete repository of information about a certain topic. As I have explained in the first paragraph it is based on and happens when I work on something. However, I will add some content on topics not only just when I see it for the first time but also things I experienced at some point in the past and that have surfaced again. Now that I have the chance and the web site to write it down I will revisit, revise and write down my experience.
