Azure Advent Calendar English 2023

Advent calendars are a fantastic initiative promoted by the tech community, in which, during December, experts share their knowledge through contributions of a specific technology in different formats:

  • blog posts
  • videos
  • webinars
  • etc.

This year we (Microsoft MVPs Héctor Pérez, Pablo Piovano, Alex Rostan and Luis Beltrán proudly present another edition of the Azure Advent Calendar 2023 in English (take a look at last year's contributions here)

We know that communities are full of talented people. Let's promote this idea with the sole purpose of creating a collaborative space in which we all benefit, from expert, professionals to students, avid seekers of knowledge.

Are you in? Would you like to share your knowledge with the community? If you are interested in participating in this initiative, just follow these simple steps:

Before December:

  1. Reserve a slot by replying to our tweet with the hashtag #AzureAdvent, or by leaving a comment on this post.

  2. When reserving a slot, choose an available date from the calendar (see below). We might open new dates if there is a high response from the community :)

  3. Important: Please send us the title of your contribution during the last week of November at the latest.

In December, on the chosen date:

  1. Publish your contribution. If you use a platform like WordPress / YouTube, you can schedule it in advance so that it is published on the desired date / time. We will share your contribution on social networks (Twitter and our Facebook communities).

  2. In your contribution, add a link to this page, so that visitors can see the complete set of contributions and learn more about the calendar initiative.

  3. Share the link to us to update the table with your contribution.

You can also share your contribution using the hashtags #azure and #AzureAdvent.
