Happy Birthday to AskPFE Platforms Blog, We Are 1 Today !



AskPFEPlat is in the process of a transformation to the new Core Infrastructure and Security TechCommunity, and will be moving by the end of March 2019 to our new home at https://aka.ms/CISTechComm (hosted at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com). Please bear with us while we are still under construction!

We will continue bringing you the same great content, from the same great contributors, on our new platform. Until then, you can access our new content on either https://aka.ms/askpfeplat as you do today, or at our new site https://aka.ms/CISTechComm. Please feel free to update your bookmarks accordingly!

Why are we doing this? Simple really; we are looking to expand our team internally in order to provide you even more great content, as well as take on a more proactive role in the future with our readers (more to come on that later)! Since our team encompasses many more roles than Premier Field Engineers these days, we felt it was also time we reflected that initial expansion.

If you have never visited the TechCommunity site, it can be found at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com. On the TechCommunity site, you will find numerous technical communities across many topics, which include discussion areas, along with blog content.

NOTE: In addition to the AskPFEPlat-to-Core Infrastructure and Security transformation, Premier Field Engineers from all technology areas will be working together to expand the TechCommunity site even further, joining together in the technology agnostic Premier Field Engineering TechCommunity (along with Core Infrastructure and Security), which can be found at https://aka.ms/PFETechComm!

As always, thank you for continuing to read the Core Infrastructure and Security (AskPFEPlat) blog, and we look forward to providing you more great content well into the future!


Time really does fly when you are having fun. Today marks the day when we went up live last year. We set off with a modest goal to share our field and real world experience with you, to perhaps one day talk about an issue that’s relevant to your job, to spark some light of interest for an existing Windows technology or talk about something that’s totally new to all of us. We hope we did some of that. In process, to date we have posted 66 blog articles that have received around 300 comments, we have been visited by 173 countries, with total of over 220,000 unique visitors. But the numbers don’t quantify our progress towards achieving our goal, we hope to continue to share some of our experience as well as rely on your comments and feedback to make this blog a valuable resource for you. So again, a BIG thanks to YOU for reading this blog and a HUGE gratitude for our team members for taking the time to write. We have great things on the way for you, so stick around.


Happy Birthday to Ask Premier Field Engineering Blog !!











Until next time, Rick “keeping it short” Sheikh.
