Become a Contributor to Microsoft Docs

Starting this month, I'm leading a talk series with my teammates from the SQL Docs team at Microsoft. In this presentation we lay out just how easy it is, an how exactly, to contribute to Microsoft's Docs as Code in Github. We're looking forward to increasing visibility and ease of access to community contributions to the open source Docs that millions of professionals use every day.

If you'd like the SQL Docs team to deliver this talk to your local user group or community conference, reach out to us on Twitter or message me on LinkedIn or comment on this blog post, we'd be happy to get on your schedule. I've list upcoming engagements for this talk my Speaking Engagements page on this blog. 

Abstract: Join the SQL-Docs content team for a discussion on modern Microsoft documentation (regardless of technology). Learn about the content publishing engines behind Docs, and the best ways to add your content and fixes to Docs that are read by the entire customer community. There are hundreds of thousands of GitHub issues and PR’s submitted to Docs every month, how can you be an effective part of that process and get your face on the top of an article?

Presenter: MSFT SQL-Docs team (panelist headcount TBD)

Bio: Members of the Microsoft SQL-Docs team will present this thorough walkthrough on how you can contribute and be recognized as a SQL Docs contributor.
