Bootstrap Documentation[edit | edit source]

Test caption

This section is the starting point for documentation on the wide scope of systems for which the IT Core is responsible. The subsections follow the same categorization as the MPC IT ecosystem poster (click the thumbnail on the left for a larger view).

Bootstrap documentation is intended to quickly orient someone who is new to the system. It captures a high-level view of the project, including overall system architecture and design decisions. It also provides an operational overview so that someone trying to troubleshoot the system knows where to start.

This is not the documentation for someone who is actively developing the system, although someone new to the project should start here before deep diving into the developer docs.

New Bootstrap Page Template - This is a sample template that can be used to create a new bootstrap documentation page.
