I'm living between Berlin and Magdeburg in Germany.
I studied mechanical engineer and now I work for a quite small steel work company. Building bridges and lock gates for the German infrastructure.
Last year I ran into the need to reorganize the company handbook. So far it was handled only by Microsoft office documents on the server.
Because I rebuild the whole server of the company next to my normal project tasks I quickly got to the point that I should create a small intranet.
I searched the whole net for solutions I could use in my free time and tumbled over dokuwiki. The description as well as the extensions directly seemed to fit my first few needs. The reviews of other users also were convincing.
While I realized my first ideas I quickly found out that there are many powerful opportunities and meanwhile I have the idea also to use it not only as a wiki but also to handle some of the documents one has to produce for some projects. There I got stuck at the moment but I still hope the best. I mean I already look at learning php by hard.
As mechanical engineer I already got some knowledge on coding, I already realized some websites and some little own stuff but nothing really crazy.
So I'm following this forum now since end of last year and I hope I also can give my two cents to the community.
Ah.. missed that: 31 years old 😉
