Who Compiled and Wrote the Quran?

The Holy Quran was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad over the course of several years, with the first revelations beginning in the month of Ramadan in 610 AD, during what is known as the Night of Destiny.

But how did the Quran reach us today in its final form? In what order was the Quran revealed, and who compiled it, and why?
