Welcome to the University of Virginia ECE wiki Main Page
WHAT: This wiki provides an environment for documenting and sharing information related to working in the ECE department. It was started by the ICGroup. At this point, the wiki is only readable and editable by registered users within the UVA community. However, you're advised to still use discretion in regards to the content you post in the event that permissions are changed in the future.
WHY: This wiki is born out of the difficulties and frustration associated with the sharing of knowledge between students, professors and researchers. Too often time is wasted reinventing the wheel. Students graduate, taking their practical knowledge with them. Professors are busy and often not up to date with the latest software packages and simulation tools. New students fear seeking help from the unapproachable, borderline mentally unstable senior graduate students. This wiki is the Silicon Borg: learn, create...and ASSIMILATE!
WHERE: The easiest link to get you here is http://www.ece.virginia.edu/wiki/
UPDATE: In September 2012 Dr. Ben Calhoun generously turned the management of his group's wiki server to ECE Dept. It officially became ECE wiki site for all ECE members, collaborators, and affiliates. In August 2011 this wiki was ported to Mediawiki from TWiki and many pages made public. If you have any questions, email BenCalhoun.
HOW TO START: Anyone can read the public content on ECE Wiki. But one must login to create/edit a page, to register, one must send email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to request a login on ECE Wiki Server. To learn wiki formatting, visit Mediawiki Cheatsheet or Formatting Help.
