BAwiki | A Reference and Blog for Business Analysts

Blog Wiki About

What Happened to the content?

I have been running and creating content for the BAWiki website since roughly 2013, most of that time using WordPress. I recently ended up switching hosting providers on short notice and decided at the same time to stop using WordPress. I wanted to learn HTML and CSS and have decided to re-do the site by manually coding it myself as a way to learn.

So for now most of the prior content will be missing for a bit. I'm planning to focus on getting the wiki content up first, then I'll think about the blog.

From a technical perspective the goal is produce a site that is as fast and simple as possible while still looking decent and being easy to read and navigate. I'm going to try and code the site with just HTML and CSS, with no Javascript if I can. I'm planning to add a certificate and change the default connection to https. And I'm also planning to change most diagrams or images to SVG files where possible. All of which should enable the site to be very fast and mobile friendly enough; although the site is still mainly intended to be read on a larger screen. At the moment I am not intending to add any sort of comments back although maybe I'll set up a Slack channel or something similar if there seems to be enough interest.

The site design may change over time as I learn more, so don't be surprised to see changes over time.

If you have any feedback, you can still email me at |admin| at |bawiki.com|, without the pipes and replacing 'at' with the symbol. Thanks for visiting.

 


Progress Notes


  • 9 June 2019 - Added a quick blog page with 2 posts because I received an email asking for a specific blog post to be re-added. I also re-added more Wiki pages, including the 'Techniques' overview page. Given that the site is still very much in-progress, feedback of any sort would be welcome!
  • 26 May 2019 - Added 'Wiki Quick-Nav' as a quick navigation option that is responsive-friendly (for now). Also added the following pages back into the wiki: Affinity Diagram; Document Analysis; Stakeholder Onion Diagram; Stakeholder Salience Diagram; V-MOST Analysis
  • 14 May 2019 - Figured out how to center top navigation buttons. Adding Certification page to the wiki as first exploration of some design ideas because it is text heavy and long.
  • 11 May 2019 - Basic site concept with top navigation and side navigation for Wiki page (at least) and implemented. Wiki as new landing page, with About page also in top navigation. Placeholders added to side navigation for the 4 main wiki sections. Site design is responsive with only HTML and CSS.
  • 9 May 2019 - New hosting provider account set up and domain hosting transfer complete.
