write things down

I used to document things a lot better before. I loved spending time writing down what went behind creating something. The though process. The decisions. However, something changed in the last two years. With things being more real-time at work now, documentation took a backseat.

Last week, as I wanted to remember why I did certain things or what all went behind having the feature built the way it has been, I could not find any information at one place. I did, though, come across a lot of chat threads. But, unfortunately, a lot of separate chat threads where the conversation jumped from one topic to the other and I had to spend time grouping information about the topic.

As I spend the long weekend at home thinking of things I want to get better at, I want to start creating more “wiki” pages about things I work on.
