===================

 

Who are you, where are you, and what do you do? What are your specialty technologies?

I am Prashant Bansal, 33 years of age currently living in Portland, United States. In my personal time I love to try my hands on Photography (though I am no expert on itJ) and also love to write poems.

On the professional front I am a SharePoint Architect/Lead Developer with a long journey of hands on development experience on multiple versions of SharePoint starting from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2016 and SharePoint Online. To be honest I am a SharePoint lover and still find myself as fresher when it comes to learning new technologies around it.

I am awarded as a C# Corner MVP in April – 2017. I have also secured multiple Microsoft Certifications MCSD | MCPD | MCSA | MS | MCTS | MCP in the area of SharePoint & .Net Development.

I am also an active author for Microsoft TechNet, C# Corner and LinkedIn with the following Stats:

  Articles Comments Followers Edits
Microsoft TechNet 44 1   56
C# Corner 45 155 7  
LinkedIn 72 500+ 1415  
Twitter 25   13  

 

My blog Lets Share with SharePoint has been selected in top 50 SharePoint Blogs in the Year 2017.

What are your big projects right now?

I am honored with the privilege to work for many prestigious clients like SAP, KPMG, Prosight Insurance, Moody’s, Daimler Trucks and more.

As a part of my current expedition I am working on couple of Automation Tools to help clients integrating SharePoint with other tools.

I am also writing a couple of articles on developer’s productivity tools, and SharePoint Framework. These articles are intended to offer simple and step by step guidance on how to increase a productivity and adoption of new technologies introduced by Microsoft around SharePoint Stack.

Very soon these articles will be available on TechNet as well.

 

What is TechNet Wiki for? Who is it for?

TechNet Wiki wonderful collaboration platform for all the Techies across the globe who are looking for interacting with new ideas, new implementations, and better solutions approaches.

I personally recommend people to participate to this collaboration platform and learn from experts across the world.

What do you do with TechNet Wiki, and how does that fit into the rest of your job?

Truly speaking I started writing articles on SharePoint as I love to share my knowledge, experience in real world scenarios with rest of the world.

I love to hear the views from experts on the solutions that I have proposed and it is really helpful for me to scale my technical capabilities as a Solution Architect.

 

In what other sites and communities do you contribute your technical knowledge?

I am also contributing to other Communities like

Do you have any comments for product groups about TechNet Wiki?

I feel New UI is required for TechNet Wiki which should be more users friendly. Also should work on Search features for TechNet Wikis. Right now it is very difficult to search the articles written by specific authors.

 

Do you have any tips for new Wiki authors?

Being a learner I believe that all the authors should focus on distributing learning in the simplest possible ways that helps the readers without many hassles.

 

============================

 

Thank you, Prashant for the advice! And you're right, it should be easier to find articles written by certain authors.

Everyone, please join me in thanking Prashant for his contributions to the community!

 

Join the world! Join TechNet Wiki.
