About Chris Boorman’s Cookbooks

This site is actually an experiment. It’s merely a compilation of my own personal notes. I’m a technical writer and I make notes whenever I begin a new project because that’s when I have to start wrapping my mind around a lot of stuff (new concepts, new tools, deployment details, etc.), and I find this process useful as a learning aid. I call these notes cookbooks because I use them to document the technologies and procedures that I need to get my work done.

I always begin a project by jotting-down details that meet my immediate need (so I can perform the most rudimentary tasks). As I gain momentum, I add more details—always to clarify my understanding (I note insightful observations, unexpected revelations, work-arounds, etc.).
