Professional Wikis explains how Wikis are emerging as the new means of content delivery and information sharing on the web. They have proven to be invaluable to web and application developers who employ them in collaborative development efforts. The book goes from the theory behind why wikis are successful and how user generated content delivers value to a business, to actual implementation. The book is rounded-out by advanced sections that cover scaling and social issues that are involved in real-world wiki management. It also explores the API of commercial wikis and integrating them with corporate infrastructure and expanding to application add-ons and database integration. There are five major sections: 1. An introduction to Wikis and a description of how businesses and organizations are using them to improve collaboration. 2. The second section provides a look and WikiMedia from the user's perspective: a how-to-guide for using collaboration tools to collaborate effectively in particular for development projects. 3. The third section gets into the technical nuts and bolts of installing and supporting the applications. 4. The fourth section delves into design and information architecture issues. The technology behind Wikis is simple - the challenge comes when trying to support them within a larger content management environment. The section examines best practices for organizing your sites, and takes a look at Semantic MediaWiki, which is a new project from the Wikimedia foundation that has been started in an effort to address this problem, based upon their experience managing the mother-of-all-Wikis Wikipedia. 5. The finalsection rounds out the discussion by providing specific examples of how businesses and organizations have implemented Wikis, the challenges they've faced and the successes they've enjoyed.
