The Hex Cookbook

The cookbook contains, but is not limited to, the Hexagonal Enterprise System documentation, best practices (for programming, design and content creation), brand guidelines (for design & user experience or "UX"), materials for sales presentations, rules for admin and the "user" guide.


Why "The Cookbook"?

Whether programmer or designer, the Hex Cookbook helps you "cook up a storm"; create a new widget, module, layout, function, user-interface, database... anything. This is way beyond Documentation ...

The cookbook aims to be the bridge between system designers, programmers and all other stakeholders.

This approach opens up the potential for a new genre of documentation curricula that includes items which make documentation interesting, accessible and useful for the less "technically oriented" of those among us. This is important since the non-technical people are the majority of the stakeholders.

The Hex Cookbook
The cookbook aims to be the bridge between system designers, programmers and all other stakeholders. The Hex "Cookbook" is not as meant as narrowly as "Documentation" (in that term's traditional usage). The name "cookbook" is not as dull as the commonly used term "Documentation".

The cookbook aims to feature as an asset for traditional "Communications and Marketing" purposes. The cookbook aims to be the bridge between developer and all other stakeholders (usually referred to as "end users").

Discoverability is crucial ~ one of the key purposes of the cookbook.
