Open for Feedback: Contribute Directly to Visual Studio App Center Product Documentation

John Wargo [MSFT]

To ensure Visual Studio App Center is as easy as possible to use, we’ve created a more direct feedback channel for building and publishing product documentation based on the great feedback we receive from you, our users. Open sourcing our product documentation is a natural extension of our App Center philosophy, which is open API, open source SDKs, and an open source CLI. Our public document repository also enables us to integrate with a feedback system based on GitHub issues.
