Entity Framework FAQs Moving

We have decided to use Microsoft’s Technet Wiki site to host the Entity Framework FAQs web site.

There are two main reasons for this:

  • the current build process for the site is difficult to understand (for me at least), but more importantly:
  • the FAQs site ought to be a community resource, and members of the Entity Framework community ought to be able to contribute to it easily, without going through a “single person bottleneck”, which I and my predecessor were.

Now, the only thing you have to do in order to contribute is go here (http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/129.aspx) and sign up. What this consists of is getting a Windows Live ID, and registering a Display Name so you can earn “points”, which count towards attaining MVP status, if that is of interest to you.

Once you do that, you are good to go, and can edit and create wiki topics at will. If you haven’t worked with wikis before, the above link has further links that will introduce you to the process. This is my first experience working with wikis, as opposed to just reading them, and as a writer, I’m liking it a lot! Hopefully you will too, and will have some unique insights (or questions) to add to the site.

When the move is complete, I’ll post the new url.
