Celebrating My 10th Article and Interview on the Microsoft TechNet Wiki

I heard about the Microsoft TechNet community a long long time ago but started to look at the Wiki only last year. Once a week I used to go and do some reading as the articles are of really high quality and the writers often share their own experiences and include lots of tips that help a lot.

At the same time, I started to use Azure Machine Learning and thought, why not write an article about it. So, I wrote my first article on the 13 Sep 2014 which is Predictive Analytics with Microsoft Azure Machine Learning. And this was how my first article was born. Surprisingly enough, this article featured in the TechNet Wiki article spotlight and also won the Microsoft TechNet Gold Guru Award for the month of September 2014.

                                                       









Since then, I started to contribute regularly to the Microsoft TechNet community, not only by writing articles, but also, by editing and tweaking tons of articles written by other community members.

Articles

Below is a list of all articles I wrote in the past months:

1 Predictive Analytics with Microsoft Azure Machine Learning
