Introduction

This handbook gives a single place to find the information you need as a current or prospective member of Infinity Works, including our culture and how we do things.

See our contributing guide.

What about the Infinitranet, Confluence, etc?

This guide replaces the "Infinitranet" and other microsites, most non-client-related material in Confluence, and many documents and slides in Google Drive.

Current problems and why this handbook is the solution

#ProblemSolution
1Company information is scattered in too many different places, making it hard to find information. This also leads to inconsistent and out of date information.One place to find information makes onboarding easier. Having one place will reduce the amount of out of date and inconsistent information.
2Access control, version control, and change approval processes are weak in Google sites, Google docs and Confluence, and inadequate for official company information. Because of this, edit access is restricted, meaning most people cannot contribute.Storing content as markdown in GitHub ensures robust access control, version control, and change approval process. Anyone in the company can submit a contribution for consideration by maintainer groups. CODEOWNERS allows individual maintainer groups (or none) for different parts of the handbook as required.
3Users must be comfortable with GitHub and Markdown to update the existing microsites.Use of a content management user interface such as Netlify CMS on top of the GitHub/Markdown content store makes it easy to use for all.
4Many of the existing information sources are public-facing, but do not reflect our brand, and therefore undermine our credibility and professionalism.Company branding can be applied consistently across the handbook.
5Existing tools are all private or all public, and there is a lack of consistent policy on which information is public and private.Specific parts of the handbook can be public and others private. Having all the information in one place makes it easier to apply consistent policies
