Knowledge types in the project

The following "types of knowledge" can be distinguished in any project:

  • Fundamental knowledge
    Knowledge that does not change much over time, such as algorithms, computer science, programming language mechanisms and its APIs.

  • Technology stack
    Knowledge of the set of technical solutions used in a project, including programming languages, frameworks, and libraries.

  • Project knowledge
    Knowledge that is specific to the current project and not valuable outside of it. This knowledge is essential for newly-onboarded developers to be able to contribute effectively.

Feature-Sliced Design is designed to reduce reliance on "project knowledge", take more responsibility, and make it easier to onboard new team members.
