ASP.NET Wiki Beta
One of my first projects when I started working here is an ASP.NET Wiki. ScottGu had the idea and my team had to make it happen. The Beta (finally!) launched today. A lot of work went into the development and seeding of this project.
The idea is that folks spend a lot of time trolling the blogs,
googling live-searching for answers to common "How To" questions. There's piles of fantastic community-created and MSFT-created content out there, but if it's not found by a search engine and the right combination of keywords, it's often lost.
Search is great, but for targeted answers you can't beat the one-two punch of search plus human editing. I spent a long time looking for content and seeding the wiki, but there's still piles to do. Hopefully it won't be just me editing it.
What's the point:
- To provide a targeted, categorized, human-hand-edited, and living Wiki for finding answers to ASP.NET questions.
You can leave comments on the content, there's RSS feeds, and you add your own updates and make it better. You'll also get recognition points if you're a member of the http://www.asp.net community.
You can get there from http://wiki.asp.net/ and it's also been added to main tab menu of http://www.asp.net. Folks are already starting to discover the site and make changes. I hope you find it helpful!
Thanks above all to my friend Ward for inventing the Wiki in the first place!
