Live-Scripting is a documentation centric working style for IT professionals that promotes reuse and sharing of proven solutions. In my previous video, I already demonstrated how to work on the command line and document it at the same time. In the video “Live-Scripting Introduction” I take a broader perspective and address the problem of the growing amount of knowledge that needs to be understood, digested, documented and shared. Companies often struggle with sharing of knowledge and solutions because documentation is a time-consuming and often unpleasant task. On the other hand, even experienced engineers repeat analysis of the similar problems because they have simply forgotten the details of the work that they have done weeks or month ago. Fighting against the forgetting curve is a prevalent challenge.
The Live-Scripting approach aims at making the process of creating, sharing and reusing documentation smooth and effective.
