KenCenerelliCertificate

Today I received a nice surprise – a certificate for being a Top Contributor to Azure Documentation on Microsoft Docs in the Canadian Open Source Doc-a-thon.

According to the site, “The Canadian Open Source Doc-a-thon is an opportunity to collaborate virtually (via GitHub) with the Canadian technical community and build your reputation as an expert by reviewing and improving Azure documentation.”

The goal of the Doc-a-thon is to improve Microsoft product documentation hosted in docs.microsoft.com.

Check out the site for details on how to participate in the next phase of the Canadian Open Source Doc-a-thon.

Microsoft TechNet and MSDN blog contributor

The month of February has been an interesting one. Over the past weeks I have been asked join two Microsoft-hosted blogs as a contributor.

WikiNinjaThe first is the TechNet Wiki Ninjas blog which is the “Official Blog of TechNet Wiki”. If you know me or have been reading this blog, you know that I am an active contributor to the TechNet Wiki. So, to be asked to join this blog is an honour. The blog helps people become more familiar with TechNet and it encourages them to submit articles to the communal library.

For my first blog article I contributed tips about image compression and it was posted on February 24, 2016: Wiki Life: Image compression in the TechNet Wiki.

MSDN_logoThe second blog site I have joined is the Azure Development Community. Whereas the Wiki Ninjas blog has been active for sometime, this blog is brand new. It was developed by Ed Price at Microsoft and its authors are a collection of Microsoft employees, MVPs, Partners, and Azure development experts who are interested in Azure.

My first post appeared February 25, 2016 and is an Azure Content Spotlight centered around Deployment Slots for Azure Web Apps.

Please check out both sites and the large amount of articles on each. While there, drop a comment or rate an article. The authors would be grateful.
