Documenting what you do is important. I find that the perceived value of documentation varies from workplace to workplace. Some places I’ve worked at shoot from the hip every time, to them this is normal. Other places document how to tie your shoe. I feel there should be a balance. Document anything you repeat that others cannot easily perform off the top of their head.
This blog is a overflow of some of my documentation that I think would help others.
I’ve been working in the IT industry since the mid 2000’s. I graduated from RIT in 2008. I was fortunate enough to have access to a computer early on as a child. My mother used to transcribe medical dictation and needed a PC to do so. I remember the first computer had the orange and black monitor, I’m not even sure what OS it had…
I always tinkered with the computer and knew since middle-school that the computer field was what I wanted to do. Luckily Rochester has great colleges with a variety IT programs, so I jumped into the IT abyss right after high-school.
