Someone recently asked me for our template, style guidelines and other details about writing for MSDN. I wanted to find the public page about this, so I dug around for what seemed like ages and couldn’t find anything even though I knew this was up on MSDN somewhere.

Eventually, I resorted to search and tracked it down at Since it was so hard for me to find, I thought I should bubble it up to the front page of VB and C#, in case anyone else is looking for it 🙂

Update: Stephen Toub from MSDN Magazine just sent me the corresponding link for submissions to their publication…

Another Update: For some reason, this posts gets a lot of comments from people looking for a free download of MSDN. That is not what this post is about, it is about writing articles for MSDN. Go ahead and ask for a free copy of MSDN, I’m just going to ignore it…. that isn’t something I can provide.
