Welcome to Wiki Wiki Web, also known as Wards Wiki or just Wiki. A lot of people had their first wiki experience here. This community has been around since 1995 and consists of many people. We always accept newcomers with valuable contributions. If you haven't used a wiki before, be prepared for a bit of Culture Shock. The usefulness of Wiki is in the freedom, simplicity, and power it offers.

This site's primary focus is People Projects And Patterns in Software Development. However, it is more than just an Informal History Of Programming Ideas. It started there, but the theme has created a culture and Dramatic Identity all its own. All Wiki content is Work In Progress. Most of all, this is a forum where people share ideas! It changes as people come and go. Much of the information here is subjective. If you are looking for a dedicated reference site, try Wiki Pedia; Wiki Is Not Wikipedia!
