Welcome to our Monday interview with a Wiki Ninja!
One thing I'm trying to do this year is to promote and encourage the Portuguese community to be more present and contribute with more articles on TechNet Wiki, whether they be in English or Portuguese, and today interview is with one Portuguese Community member… João Eduardo Sousa.
Besides being my friend, João is also my coworker that in the last few months has writen several articles about MVC
Who are you, where are you, and what do you do? What are your specialty technologies?
My name is João Sousa and I am 34 years old. I was born and currently live in Porto. I'm working as a Software Engineer on Devscope (www.devscope.net), directly with Microsoft Products.
My focus is on C# .NET Programming (Desktop and Web Applications).
What do you do with TechNet Wiki?
TechNet Wiki is a great tool that allows a wide variety of users, from novice to experts, to share their knowledge on a range of interesting issues.
TechNet Wiki community gives us access to a wide range of good articles and state of the art knowledge.
I find this solution to be very useful on my job whenever I need to find some information regarding a specific topic.
What is it about TechNet Wiki that interests you?
It usually takes a lot of time to find quality information about a specific topic. With TechNet Wiki you can easily access content and find answers quickly. It is also a good place to share knowledge. One point that I would like to highlight is the possibility to add contributions to the other posts, in order to improve their quality, always under the supervision of ThechNet Wiki experts.
This way it is ensured the quality of the information shared.
What are your favorite articles you’ve contributed?

Who has impressed you in the Wiki community, and why?
I would have to say you, without any doubt. First of all, you were the one who introduced me to the TechNet Wiki and urged me to start contributing. Also, for you great articles and amazing participation on TechNet Wiki community.
