"Documenting the process of learning is what is going to separate you from others." -marlon cole

So you're in the beginning stages of something new.  You realize that documenting things--that documentation--is a potentially valuable aid, both to others and to yourself.  How do you do it?

Let's take technology learning for example, better yet, let's take me.

Here's how i am going to document things:

  • Start with an outline - what do i want to convey in this document?
  • Define the overview & scope of the document - i.e. by following the instructions in this document...
  • Write, revise and improve the draft.

Some additional considerations on the documentation topic (these may not all be addressed on this platform, but will need to be recorded somewhere):

  • How is it being used in industry?
  • What are the different scenarios it's being used?
  • What is it good for?  
  • When do you use it and when don't you use it?
  • What are others (organizations and/or people) doing?

I am seeking to understand the concepts and methods behind the assignments i am given, not necessarily how to most quickly do more and more things faster.  I'm confident that this approach--enthusiastically approved of by my teacher--will help with my comprehension and understanding of topics.  

I'm also hoping that by sharing my writing publicly, i can encourage other readers and writers who are similarly perfecting their own crafts.

    @harold41 - tuning in. Love this line of thinking.
