Good time of the day, community!
Hope, that my post won't irritate too much, but rather will be helpful for someone in future.
I already made some progress myself (I mean some raw unfinished version of the technical document), and searched across the web - but any extra hints will be welcomed.
Below, I will give a sequential abstract (but precise) description.
What I have:
On my current work I have a web-service. It has:
some user interface
some validation done in fill-in forms within that interface (on frontend level)
list of variants for some of the fields, that are being queried from some internal database using specific sql-conditions
backend logic for processing submitted forms
backend/database logic for storing information from submitted info
some frontend logic for retrieving already submitted info
probably something else technical that I have forgotten to mention
What I need to do:
I need to compose a technical description (with text, tables and probably diagrams) of how the system works (both frontend and backend).
Why do I need it:
We (me, system analyst, and my team of my supervising manager and developers) are going to get this description. Then we are going to look at it, and brainstorm what we can and/or shall change. Then I will make a technical design for things we are going to change/add (if there will be any).
What issues I encountered:
- I can't really find any example of (or method for) such document, that would be well-designed and not-so-difficult to understand.
- I was looking for some online courses on that, but all of them look very generic.
- Both points "1" and "2" above refer to technical description document I need to make now, and technical design document - in future.
Hope for some of your help. And, as I usually say, response is appreciated, ignorance will be understood.
