Atlassian Confluence for Technical Documention

A video demonstration of Atlassian Confluence as a documentation alternative to Microsoft Word, SharePoint and OneNote.

For those not familiar, Confluence is a Wiki platform ideally suited for documenting technical topics. It offers "just-enough" editing capability on a page to deliver attractive, readable content. It is simple and efficient to author and organize content. 

Key benefits of the software:

  • Highly usable and simple to learn authoring environment
  • Hierarchical organization into spaces and pages
  • Heads-Up page authoring 
  • Plugin capabilities for diagrams, visuals
  • Integration with JIRA task management
  • Active-directory (AD) integration with configurable permissions 
  • Content stored in Microsoft SQL Server
  • Inexpensive licenses for smaller workgroups

In the video below, the author demonstrates Confluence using the personal wiki he's revised over the past decade.
