Good documentation can save a lot of time to look for the information that you have once obtained. I had been looking for some documentation system that can help me to write down notes and finally decided to use a wiki.
Using a wiki can provide some great benefits:
- It is web based can I can access anywhere.
- My documents can be organized by sites and category so I have a central place to look for things that I have done but not necessarily memorized.
- Easy collaboration with others.
There are several free wiki softwares and I chose DocuWiki after some research and test run. Since I only need a simple interface to create structured content DocuWiki was a good choice for me. This is a nice comparison on some popular wiki software that I also used to help me make my decision.
