Eth2 Book Initial Design
# The Eth2 Book: Initial Goals
Eth2 documentation and technical knowledge is, currently, spread thinly across various corners of the internet. Existing resources are often difficult to discover via simple searches. Some attempts have been made to collect links to resources within research “indices,” but these projects often go unmaintained after only a short period of time. More accessible documents tend to fall into the extremes of overly-technical or overly-simplistic writing.
The Eth2 Book is an extensive educational resource that aims to tackle these issues and, as a result, become the go-to location for anyone looking to understand Eth2 in depth. By collecting, parsing, and presenting Eth2 knowledge under a single (digital) roof with a consistent written voice, The Eth2 Book will vastly simplify the on-boarding process for potential new Eth2 contributors.
The following is a detailed explanation of the various project goals for an early phase/draft to evaluate to get this project started.
## Guiding Documentation
Any project of sufficiently large scale, The Eth2 Book included, is benefitted by a strong vision statement. To this end, we should create a “Guiding Document” that details long-term goals and values for the resource. The Guiding Document solidifies project vision, target audience, content structure, and other key design decisions.
## Content Research
We should have most initial research on content within the book completed. Eth2 is expansive and available resources are, at times, hard to find or parse. We should collect and organize a significant number of technical primary sources in preparation for the writing effort. We’ve also augmented many of these sources with additional notes in order to clarify certain confusing details.
## Content Outline
Existing Eth2 resources focus primarily on specific technical subjects within the wider context of Eth2. As The Eth2 Book aims to present Eth2 in its entirety, we should spend significant time developing an accessible content flow. Our flow should introduce new concepts only when necessary to continue a reader’s education, and attempts to avoid complex subjects until a reader has sufficient background knowledge.
## Content Drafts
We should create early content drafts for most of the topics within the outline. Initial drafts should serve as scaffolding for the book as a whole and be part of a feedback loop that should further inform the content flow.
## Initial Website Design
The Guiding Document describes certain basic principles for the design of the website, including requirements around accessibility and readability. We should develop an initial version of the site that draws from best practices regarding the presentation of written content (“walls of text”) in a digital format. The site should be easily upgradeable and further improved as we draw closer to an initial launch.
