Why documenting?

I have been experimenting with many things over the past many years. In this process I've learned things which my school or my books didn't teach. And I know, for a reason, that there are many more people like me who are trying to learn things that I have learned already or trying to learn now. This learning process is time consuming. It's not straight enough like a question and an answer in the exam. Everything is an experiment. And experiments take a great deal of time and carry a risk factor with them. Even after spending numerous hours trying to do something, you still may end up not succeeding.

This is an effort to make things a bit straight for those of you who don't want to spend time experimenting, instead want to get things done. This comes with its own advantages and disadvantages. You will not be going through all those resources that I have been through to accomplish these tasks. Therefore you will not be gaining the same experience as I did through searching and learning all those things that are connected to that task that I want to accomplish. But then, the advantage is that you will not have to spend all the time that I have already spent researching about the task.

Anyway, one other motive behind this blog is that I will have documentation to stuff I did in the past or doing right now. In my experience, in a significant number of cases, I had to revisit my old stuff to get a current task done. However, my old stuff had no/little documentation and that too not in an organized manner. I, therefore, wanted a  way to document my learnings and revisit them whenever I want in the future.

With this, let me end the story behind my thoughts of starting a blog.

Get in touch if you have any questions on things that I have documented.
