This book was written with the beginner in mind. It walks you through step-by-step exercises and makes use of illustrations to show exactly what is going on in each. You will be taken through exercises that t only help you to build a solid, secure wiki, but provide a foundation on which you can build and challenge yourself to learn even more. Throughout the book, you will follow along as a wiki dedicated to free/open source software built from the ground up. If you are a Web Designer, IT Administrator or Executive, or a Programmer and wish to gain a solid foundation in the MediaWiki software application, then this book is for you.
