Summary of my contributions on TechNet Wiki in the first half of 2012

Posted: June 6, 2012  |  Categories: BizTalk Integration

In the last couple of months, I wrote a number of wiki articles for Microsoft TechNet Wiki. Initially and along with Ruth Resende I decided to fill a gap in TechNet Wiki: the lack of BizTalk articles or documentation in Portuguese but I ended up joining the BizTalk Wiki Ninjas (Steef-Jan Wiggers, Tord Gard Nordahl, Dan Rosanova and much more) also in English.

I think that all platforms have their purpose and for me, TechNet Wiki acts as a complement to Forums, Blogs, magazines or MSDN library, and one of the greatest advantages is that anyone can pick up an article, fix it or add relevant content to the topic, making it always up to date. The content that you find there is generated by the community and Microsoft employees about Microsoft technologies and products for the community.

So after approximately six months that I have begun to contribute to the TechNet Wiki, this is the result!
