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.
