Wiki Life: Tags 4 - Technology Tags

This blog post is Part 4 in this series:

  1. Wiki Life: Tags 1 - What are the common tags on TechNet Wiki?
  2. Wiki Life: Tags 2 - the article HAS WHAT????
  3. Wiki Life: Tags 3 - Language & Translation Tags
  4. Wiki Life: Tags 4 - Technology Tags (this blog post)


The goal and quest here is to bring visibility to these standards and to refine and grow them!

On TechNet Wiki, we've divided up the tags standards (to build consistency and synergy in tag use) in two categories:

  1. Wiki: Common Tags
  2. TechNet Wiki: Technology Tags


Today we're digging into the second type, Technology Tags.

Please reply below to help us review this list and refine it!

We want to combine some tags that are too similar, in order to make it less hectic. For example, if there are fifty tags for SharePoint 2013 (such as SP2015, SP 2015, SP15, SharePoint2015, and so on)... then we're in trouble! They all become ineffective.

Also, please help us add the newest technologies and anything we've missed!


Here's a snapshot in time of our Technology Tags list...
