Documenting Design

The seminar of Documenting Design explain us the importance of DOCUMENTATION (=PROCESS OF RECORDING, CAPTURING, AND PRESERVING INFORMATION, DETAILS, AND EVENTS IN A STRUCTURED MANNER).

The act of documenting- so writing down our ideas, reflection or show images or video- is useful to spread our thoughts to other people and to preserve the mental processes that we do for an activity.

It’s also a way to organize all the chaos that i have in my mind and let it be understandable to myself

In addiction, it’s important to add a proper narrative to the elements of documentation,

NARRATIVE

  • Characters
  • Context
  • Plot
  • Conflict
  • Resolution
  • Emotion
  • Visuals
  • Reflection
  • Narrative Flow

for this reason each of us in the class have to create and update a personal website with all the contents and reflections about the journey here at IAAC.

So, two things that I’ve never use so to do will be part of my everyday life: coding and documenting. If i have to be honest, i’m not so good on keep things updated in one singular space, because i tend to create or use many spaces to annotate things, but i have to admit that this way is not really useful and it doesn’t help my mind to remember all the concepts; in addiction i always change my mind about the structure on how i want to keep my notes, mostly because I let myself be influenced by other’s ideas, which in part is helpful, but on the other hand makes me lose my own creativity;this is the reason why i want to keep my template similar to the default one, in order to costumize it only with my small editigs, and when i’ll be ready, i’ll chose my own structure and interface.

At present, I’m giving my best effort to both documenting and coding. 😊
