As you saw, back in August the Microsoft Tech Community officially reached half a million members! Since then, we have been able to welcome 42,000 new members. 

 

In celebration of this milestone, we shared reflections about the Tech Community from some of our esteemed community leaders. 

 

 

We also asked all Tech Community members to let us know how the Microsoft Tech Community has impacted them by sending in videos that answered the question, “How has the Microsoft Tech Community helped you grow as a professional?”. Take a look at what some members had to say:

I already knew a lot about Microsoft Edge, but I grew as a professional by helping people. Practicing.

There are lots of useful information in MTC, the most useful ones are the blog posts and articles that Microsoft employees write and share their knowledge with us through them. they help a lot.
