Welcome to another Tuesday TNWiki Article Spotlight.
Microsoft TechNet contains a vast trove of information for the developer and IT professional. Sometimes though this data can get buried and procedures within the website can be hard to use.
This lack of functionality was spotted by Ronen Ariely (pituach) and addressed when he created an award-winning article entitled List of forums by Languages, categories, and field of discussions for the TechNet Wiki.
In the post, Ronen states that “There is no home page where we can search for a specific forum or see the entire list of forums.” So, he took it upon himself to detail a small part of the TechNet Forums and has broken them up by category and language.
For example. English forums make up the majority of the article but there are also items in Czech, French, Hebrew, Italian, and German. There are many more that are not on the list (Ronen estimates that there may be several thousand forums) and the idea is to get it as complete as possible via continual updates.
If you ever wanted to know if a specific forum exists, start with this list. As well, if you do not see a forum you visit often on the list, add it.
This is definitely one page where the entire TechNet community can benefit.
