Welcome to TWiki! This is a TWikiSite
(pronounced twee-kee site
), a meeting place to work on common interests. Anyone can contribute using any web browser. TWiki looks like a normal web site... except that it encourages contribution and editing
of pages, questions, answers, comments and updates.
"Wiki" systems are fundamentally editable web pages. It's a fun and useful way of communicating asynchronously over the web for many existing intranet and public Internet sites. TWiki is simple to learn and use. It aims to provide a transparent way for you to publish and exchange your ideas with others over the web.
What's in a TWiki?
- Webs: A TWikiSite is divided into webs, each one represents an area for collaboration. This site has the following webs: CakesAndBooks, DROrg, ECCP, ELearning, EResearch, GridAndHPC, GridTech, Know, Main, Sandbox, TWiki, Visualisation
- Topics: Each web is made up of hyperlinked topics that appear in your browser.
Some things to do
- Browse. This is a site like other sites. Read and follow interesting links.
- Write. Speak your mind! From your browser you can change or add to anything you see in a TWiki topic. Use regular text or TWikiShorthand.
