Curah! – Curate the web and share what you know


Searching for great technical information is tough – and finding the right place to contribute and show off great content that you’ve either written or discovered is also challenging. With our new content service Curah!, we have a way to make both those tasks easier.

We’ve developed Curah! as a way to help customers discover great technical content. Curah! has a very specific purpose: to help people searching in Bing or Google find annotated collections of great content that specifically target common user questions. We’ve all been there before, typing in a search query and then hunting and clicking through pages of search results wondering where the good stuff is, what’s reputable, what’s appropriate and what’s current. A Curah! curation takes the guesswork out of the process – because it has been hand-selected and annotated by experts. We want customers to think about what they find as the “best of the web” – with descriptions of (and links to) great content that has been curated by others. Our curations are created by others who’ve trod the path to knowledge before them – and learned firsthand about the good resources out there.

So when you are in your search engine, look for Curah! When you do, you’ll know what you’re going to get: a collection of annotated links that can help guide you to the content you need.

If you have content or insights to share, Curah! also invites you to share what you know, which you can easily do at http://curah.com. The Curah! site offers a great opportunity to promote what you know by becoming a curator.

The role of curator is key to the success of Curah! Curators know the problems they’ve tackled in their work, and the content exists on the web that addresses those problems.

Curators know what is authoritative, what is helpful, and what is appropriate for users of varying levels of expertise. Curah! enables them to easily create a set of links and descriptions – and to publish it to the web within seconds.

Curah! is a great way for experts in a particular technology, product, solution, or scenario to share their knowledge.

Namaste!

    RSS feed??

  2. IE 11 error says:

    it's supported?

  3. Bryan Franz (MSFT) says:

    @Mike Parsons – An RSS feed is not yet available, but it is on the roadmap and we expect it will be available in a future site update.

  4. Bryan Franz (MSFT) says:

    @IE11 error – An issue with accessing the site has been reported by a few people.  We are actively working on a fix.  In the meantime, opening an InPrivate session or clearing the cache is likely to resolve the issue.

  5. Durval Ramos says:

    If you do not make the IDE slow, alright

  6. Eliezer Perlmutter says:

    I have IE Version 11.0.9600.16438 and the site it works fine.

  7. Arda Cetinkaya says:

    First of all, Curah is a great platform to share knowledge and I hope it goes on forever…

    But there is some tiny bugs as I see so far. For example, if you try to insert any HTML code of javascript in description fields, you will be seeing HTML source code of the whole page as response…

  8. Peter Shashkin says:

    Can anybody provide an update when the site is going to be fixed? Still showing Error in chrome

  9. Bryan Franz (MSFT) says:

    @Peter Shashkin – We are actively working on a fix.  In the meantime, opening an incognito session in Chrome (Ctrl+Shift+N) is likely to resolve the issue in the short term.  Thanks!

  10. Bryan Franz (MSFT) says:

    @Arda Cetinkaya – Thanks for the bug report.  We will investigate.

  11. T says:

    C# as a search term returns no results.

  12. Marcello says:

    Try a bit harder next time.

  13. Bryan Franz (MSFT) says:

    @T – We are working on a fix for this issue in a future site update.  Thanks very much!

    wow is right. It is amazing how bad the products/website are that you release that are written in visual studio. This website is horrible and search is even worse.  Why is it that only us on the outside of Microsoft's Ivory Towers realize just how bad .NET and Visual Studio are. Please feel free to delete this comment as well since you delete all negative posts.

    A search for c# returned zero results. Keep up the good work !

    Hi!

    Is ist possible to use Curah! as a "company-internal-knowledge-database", in other words i publish a curation and define wich user (existing MS-Account) can find/read my article via search/filter?

    Tanks in advance,

    Wolfgang
