Canadian Open Source Doc-a-thon

#OSSDevsCA

What is the Canadian Open Source Doc-a-thon?

The Canadian Open Source Doc-a-thon is an opportunity to collaborate virtually (via Github) with the Canadian technical community and build your reputation as an expert by reviewing and improving Azure documentation.

The previous Open Source Doc-a-thon created so many great moments of documentation and engagements with our technical community, we wanted to bring it back!

As you know, all of our product documentation hosted in docs.microsoft.com, is available to everyone to use, edit, and improve - anytime, online or offline. We believe that Microsoft product documentation can be improved with the help of the community, and we welcome reviews and improvements of specific areas of documentation (both translation errors and content errors/improvements).

What’s in it for me?

  • Pursue a technology you believe in
  • Build your reputation as an expert
  • Try something new
  • Make improvements that impact everyone
  • Team up with people in your community
  • Or do all of this!
