A wiki is an interactive website that allows all users to participate in the knowledge sharing process. MojaveWiki, in particular, has been setup to provide tips, tutorials, and various other artifacts related to software development and open source. By archiving these tidbits of information, it will free our brains, in particular mine, from attempting to manage all the information that piles up every day, so that it may be free to accept new ideas.


The goals of this site are simple. I want to have a place where I can easily maintain all the essays and thoughts that float around in my head but never make it to paper. Knowledge is worthless unless it is shared. The only way to reasonably enable sharing is to remove as many obstacles as possible. MojaveWiki offers a clean solution to creating content without much effort. Almost every agile development book I read suggests the use of a wiki, and I agree. Some pages will be rants, other raves, but most will be overviews of techniques I have found helpful to me in the never ending effort to build a castle in the sand.
