For each month there are new articles, updates to existing docs, and kudos for the community contributors.

.NET added a great new article in the .NET Guide on How to migrate from Newtonsoft.Json to System.Text.Json

Other areas of the docs are also adding similar related what's new pages too. Check out ASP.NET Core docs updates and Xamarin updates too!

It's mind-blowing how few of my fellow dev coworkers over the years didn't take the time to get up to date with the latest releases of their main programming tools. Anyone who does so could instantly become a go-to resource in their workplace, and that all starts with sharing that knowledge with peers.
