Back after Microsoft announced earlier this year it would quit publishing MSDN Magazine, there was some worry about what it would mean for the provider’s MSDN and TechNet forums. Between the two of them, they had a great deal of details on the company products. The answer, it turns out, is that Microsoft intends to migrate those databases to a new site named Microsoft Q&A.
The Business describes the site for a Means to get”applicable and Timely answers to your technical problems from a community of experts and Microsoft engineers.” To be clear, this isn’t the place you will go to if you require technical assistance for a consumer — Microsoft has other, long-standing resources for that. On the contrary, it’s where IT managers can seek assistance for example, with their own Azure Cloud deployments.
What is Here will be familiar territory if you have used a Q&A website. It’ll attempt to locate posts where someone may have answered your question already when you begin typing a query into the search bar. You can follow tags, certain posts and people to get upgrades. It is also possible to earn points for answering reputation points for answering questions.
At the moment, the Vast Majority of available topics relate to the Organization’s Azure Cloud platform. You can also find questions associated with this Partner Center API and Universal Windows Platform. Microsoft plans to add more Topics during the upcoming few months.
