Microsoft today announced the preview release of their new documentation service https://docs.microsoft.com. Based on the feedback from hundreds of developers and IT Pros, Microsoft came to know that their exiting content platforms like TechNet and MSDN needed a refresh. Since both these sites are built on a 10-15 year-old codebase with an archaic publishing and deployment system, they decided to create a brand new service that offers a modern web experience for content.
Our focus was not only on the experience, but also on the content we create and how each of you consume it. For years customers have told us to go beyond walls of text with feature-level content and help them implement solutions to their business problems. We knew that the content we delivered and the platform we built must make it easy for customers to learn and deploy solutions.
In this preview release, only Enterprise Mobility Documentation (which consists of Advanced Threat Analytics, Azure Active Directory, Azure Remote App, Multi-factor Authentication, Azure Rights Management, Intune, and Microsoft Identity Manager) is available. In the future, Microsoft will migrate more of their documentation onto this new experience.
Page load time on docs.microsoft.com are between 50-300% faster in terms of load time when compared to old sites. Read about all the new features offered in this new site here.
