The Altera Wiki was founded in 2010 to provide a website for Altera users to contribute technical how-to articles and share their projects and IP with the community for all Altera related topics. The Altera Wiki complements the Altera Forum site. The Altera Forum is still the site to use for Question and Answer community help using thread discussions. The Altera Wiki is a dynamic library of public articles that any and all can update and contribute. We have integrated the Nios Wiki into the Altera Wiki, including all pages and usernames. If you have any trouble accessing your account, please contact the Admin (wikiadmin 'at' alterawiki 'dot' com).
To be a contributor to existing or create new article or project share, just register for a free account and sign in. (Note: Your Altera Wiki account is different from and has no relation to the MyAltera account on altera.com)
What is a wiki?
A wiki is a collaborative Web site oriented to providing knowledge in a particular domain. Anyone can enter information, or change or comment on anyone else's contributions. A wiki website allows communities to easily create and edit web pages via a web browser using a WYSIWYG text editor or simplified language called wikitext.
Wikipedia definition: A wiki is a website that allows the easy creation and editing of any number of interlinked web pages via a web browser using a simplified markup language or a WYSIWYG text editor.Wikis are typically powered by wiki software and are often used to create collaborative wiki websites, to power community websites, for personal note taking, in corporate intranets, and in knowledge management systems.

The Altera Wiki is a wiki website dedicated to providing community knowledge on Altera FPGAs, technologies, and tools. Subject matter contributions related to the development of Altera FPGA designs are appropriate to share on this site. The Altera Wiki uses MediaWiki technology, the same wiki platform used by Wikipedia.
How do I Create a Page?
In order to create a new page, you must register for an account first. See Help:How to create an account and log in . Then use search to find if an existing article matches the topic you want to create, i.e. you must search before you can submit new material in order to prevent duplication. If you do find an article that matches the one you want to create, try to edit that existing page to incorporate any new offering you have on that topic. Or if you think its that much different it needs its own new page, be clear in the title you create to distinguish them. You should create links between the articles so users can find and read both. For more information check out the Create a New Page Help -> Help:Editing#Create_a_new_page
How do I Edit a Page?
You can easily modify pages on the Altera Wiki. Help:Editing#Edit_an_existing_page.
First-time users, Testing Area
We suggest you practice in the wiki's sandbox. Please do your testing there, rather than editing existing pages if you are merely testing. Feel free to post whatever you want in the sandbox page.
